sounds reasonable ... maybe TIME_UTC was not documented, but i found it
both in my code and in threadpool. unfortunately threadpool looks rather
unmaintained (no activity in 3 years and afaict it was supposed to be
submitted to boost), so i am not sure, if someone will actually fix it,
which is a shame, as i found the library very useful
