Nice! I didn't realize that this was part of the workon Boost.Sync.

I tried it quickly at some point in my project which don't have yet an
interface compatibility problem (but will once released).
I ended up just using directly either boost or std where appropriate, std
in priority - boost otherwise, in a consistent fashion,
because they also have sometime different behaviours and capabilities. I
prefer to force myself to check all the code I want to change between thes
libraries so that I have to take into consideration the differences.
However, I suspect not everybody will take business time to do this.
