Gilbert, the next question then is however if we really want to use
0mq for the inter-thread communication. That idea was based on the
assumption that we'd be using it anyway, which doesn't necessarily
seem to be the case anymore.

Should we just bite the bullet and do a pure pthreads implementation?
We could encapsulate the thread management into a class ThreadMgr that
would take care of starting/stopping/etc. threads, and a new class
Thread would be the top-level class for LogWriters to be derived from.


PS: Yeah, I know, C++0x will make everything better ... And I'm still
very reluctant to pull Boost in ...
