Given that the breaking changes are due to alignment with C++11, I
think that this is a good reason to break compatibility per default.
Users have upgraded to a new version of Boost, so some upgrade cost
is expected. If users are unwilling (or unable) to upgrade their
implementation, they can easily revert to BOOST_THREAD_VERSION 2.
