I like not having the self parameter but using TLS can be slow. The
use of Boost's thread_specific_ptr (which uses pthread api) is
especially slow. Using gcc's __thread attribute is much faster (I
think that's acceptable performance wise) but this route will make it
harder to support all the compilers.
