Hi Bob,

What I have in mind was to use the boost::thread_attributes, but we are
unable to do it in OSX as the set name in OSX sets the name of the
current thread :(
After some thought I believe we could do it by using a trampoline that
will do the setting before calling the user main thread function, but
this is more complex and needs to store the name in the thread_data context.

IIUC, what you are proposing and the single thing that could be done in
an almost portable way and easily is to define two non-member functions
to set and get the thread name on namespace this_thread or any other. Is
this what you are proposing? If this is the case, this functionality can
be developed completely independently of Boost.Thread, isn't' it?
