#3812: global namespace polution
 Reporter: johnmaddock | Owner: anthonyw
     Type: Bugs | Status: new
Milestone: Boost 1.42.0 | Component: thread
  Version: Boost Development Trunk | Severity: Problem
 Keywords: |
 As noted in this thread:
 http://lists.boost.org/Archives/boost/2010/01/160448.php all global
 symbols whether macros or extern "C" functions should start with a
 "boost_" prefix - both to avoid polluting the global namespace as far as
 is possible, and to make boost-related symbols readily identifiable and

 Boost.Thread has a number of extern "C" symbols:


 Which should presumably be renamed to have boost-specific names, maybe
 "boost_thread_at_thread_exit" etc?
