I know that this can be easily done in Windows with the CREATE_SUSPENDED
flag. Can this be done in boost::thread? If not, I would consider this a big
limitation. Do other operating systems support this? Surely, Windows isn't
the only one. On that note does boost::thread support suspending and
resuming thread execution? I haven't used boost::thread (only native Windows
calls), so I don't know.
