#7501: Decouple from time libraries

  Version: Boost 1.52.0 | Severity: Problem
 Keywords: |
 In order to support more time libraries like Boost.DateTime and
 Boost.Chrono (e.g. std::chrono from C++11) and reduce library dependencies
 it is suggested to decouple Boost.Thread from Boost.DateTime and
 Boost.Chrono and introduce an abstraction layer for time units. Having
 done that, Boost.Thread should not depend on any time library, neither
 when being built nor when being used, except for its time-related
 features. The integration layer should include support for Boost.DateTime,
 Boost.Chrono and std::chrono.

 The topic has been brought up in this thread:
