Hi, booster,

I am using boost.thread in Windows with VC6, it's quite handy and useful.
I found it's better if the library can add 2 additional methods.

One is the

typedef platform_dependent thread_id_type;
thread_id_type id() const ;

sometimes I want to know what thread is really in the log file.

so I can write this:
std::cout << thread().id() << std::endl;

another one is a way to return the raw thread_handle.

typedef platform_dependent thread_handle
thread_handle handle() const ;

by this, I can suspend, terminate the thread in Windows, or in Posix
platform using #ifdef.
For example;
  boost::thread t(...);
#ifdef WINDOWS

Is this doable? Thanks.
