That's good to hear :-)

(It's a fantastic facility, I couldn't imagine having to go back to manual TLS API stuff after using __thread/__declspec(thread).)

    FWIW, I make extensive use of __declspec(thread).  I'm aware of GCC
    and Clang's __thread alternative.  No idea what IBM xlC, Sun Studio
    and others offer, if anything.

IBM xlC and Sun Studio also support this feature. From memory, it's also __thread keyword. This features is also supported by the new C11/C++11 standards.
