Excellent question that I should document. std::thread does not support
interruption, boost::thread does. I find this feature compelling enough to
justify using the boost version over the standard. The next best
alternative, as far as I know, is to do the equivalent of adding a "stop
processing messages" message to the queue. In particular, I found this to
work well together with
boost::scoped_thread<boost::interrupt_and_join_if_joinable>. The use of
boost::chrono instead of std::chrono is just to interoperate with
