I agree with the last assertion. I'm not sure that I correctly
understand with "I have found a thread wrapper class in the code that
uses time_to directly"?! In which code or in which wrapper class?

I don't see the (bad) point - timeconv.inl was already part of
the implementation of boost 1.32, so it's existence or it's precise
location shouldn't influence your code [Note that the helper functions
are simply wrapped into an unnamed namespace w/o further surrounding

It's now located in duplicated form in lib/thread/src/win32
and lib/thread/src/pthread. Whether this is intended, I don't know,
but it also shouldn't harm.
