The markup for thread were correct on RC_. Don't know what these on HEAD

For Boost.Thread we currently do have the unfortunate situation that the
"real" development is not on HEAD but on thread_rewrite branch. (I know
this is odd, but this is how things are at the moment.) This branch also
does not cover the entire tree, but only the thread subdirectories. We
(Anthony and me) are planning to move the thread_rewrite to SVN trunk
after the release to not introduce even more ambiguities before the 1.34

David told me that the plan after 1.34 release is to make the current
RC_1_34_0 branch the HEAD branch on upcoming SVN. The HEAD branch for
Boost.Thread currently is kind of "orphaned" and given the above I
cannot see much sense maintaining it.

In case of differences between HEAD and RC_1_34_0 currently it is safer
to leave RC_1_34_0 as is and forward differences to HEAD.

Thank you,
