Hi all,

As I'm sure you're all aware from Beman's posting on the main boost developers
list, Bill Kempf has granted permission for the existing boost threads code to
be released under the Boost Software License.

Since a big part of the impetus behind the rewrite project was to get
something available under the BSL, where does that leave us?

I have some thoughts on new features that could be added, and we know that the
read-write mutex is broken.

Any thoughts, anyone?
