Yep. In addition you might want to consider using shared_ptr, because your
ref-enhanced code will now need to keep track of test_instance and ensure
that it isn't destroyed before the thread has finished.

    shared_ptr<myclass> px( new myclass );
    thread test_thread( &myclass::do_thread_stuff, px );

You can also use pimpl to hide the shared_ptr in myclass, but the above is
easier, and you can make myclass noncopyable.
