your are referring to boost.task (former name was boost.threadpool)? yes I
still working on it - as you know I was asked to move some of the
functionality into separate libraries (-> boost.context, boost.fiber),
which I finish soon. Boost.task already contains a threadpool while each
worker-thread schedules fibers using boost.fiber in order to handle
blocking tasks etc.
