I forgot the obvious one yesterday: Intel's TBB. That's what the
multi-core Bro prototype is already using, and it's main thread
abstraction is (almost?) compatible to C++0x. I could live that
dependency. And it has lock-free data structures as well. I think
that's actually the best option I see right now.

But somebody has maintain the code that's *using* Boost ... My main
concern is actually that once we have Boost, folks will immediately
start using pretty much any feature it provides. :-)
