Comment (by anonymous):

 Such arrogance !! as if because you think one way the rest of the
 community can only be wrong. What about lock elevation and its reverse ?
 even windows natively implements an efficient recursive elevateable
 read/write lock ... but I guess it too complicated for boost developers so
 we should all do the work ourselves. Much less use is a timed mutex
 perhaps if that "complication" was removed it would be less "complex" to
 implement a useful semantic ?

 Yes ... people ... roll your own don't wait as even in C++!4 there isn't
