#12370: Make winapi_mutex_wrapper official
 Reporter: gast128@… | Owner: igaztanaga

Milestone: To Be Determined | Component: interprocess
  Version: Boost 1.61.0 | Severity: Cosmetic
 Keywords: |
 I couldn't find a reference in the documentation. The winapi_mutex_wrapper
 has some advantages over the named_mutex:
 * + not file based; i.e. no chance of leaking files in case crash
 * + no problem of singleton destruction order. We use 'remove' in our own
 singleton but that gives a problem being in 'atexit'
 * - Win32 / Win64 specific

 While portability is a good thing, we solely develop for Windows so the
 more handy Windows solution is ok. There is already a
 windows_shared_memory (which is also more handy than the portable
 shared_memory_object). Can't this one be promoted to official?
