A joke, thread++ ;-)
I just needed a name to test everything within the same tree. Btw. since
not everything is in the rewrite yet,
is it ok to purge the parts not yet moved into the new dir layout? The
"old" parts are still available from the cvs
attic during this time.

Possibly exceptions and config.hpp also should be shared...

Absolutely true. This is what I really meant. Link time is too late (but
would be a nice to have).

Yes. By specifying BOOST_THREAD_POSIX the pthread variant will get
compiled in.

I will try to check this into the repository today evening (around
Please be prepared that building on the thread_rewrite branch will be
broken afterwards, until everything has been

I would kindly ask you then with helping getting everything into shape
