Hi Andrey,

you are an experienced Boost member and I'm sure you could do better
that I did during these last two years.

How about providing some patch for some of the older issues that I have
not reached to solve? issues with dynamic libraries/tss.
The future implementation is NOT stable. I don't know when the bug was
introduced, but it appears clearly now on the regression test as I have
wrapped the test on a loop to increase the change of error.

I'm not requesting help on new features or refactoring, but on solving
the current and future issues. If you want to port Boost.Thread to
Boost.Synch I think the best is to create a Boost.Thread2 so that you
would not have the compatibility constraint Boost.Thread has now. I
think that you have already a good base on Boost.Sync.
