What would be the value this_thread::get_id() when called from a detached thread?
[ Resolution proposed by ballot comment: ]
Add some text to clarify that get_id() still returns the same value even after detaching.
[ 2010-11-22 Howard Hinnant observes ]
33.4.5 [thread.thread.this]/1 contains the following sentence describing this_thread::get_id():
... No other thread of execution shall have this id and this thread of execution shall always have this id.
I don't object to adding "even if detached" to this sentence, but it seems unnecessary to me. "Always" means always.
