Re: [std-proposals] Make std::thread not joinable after thread function ends.

Yes, actually proposing a non-blocking join() that returns true or false because if join() returns false, the thread is not running.

Need a way to say if(thread_is_running) { ... }, and must keep existing logic already in code so future or promise isn't allowed.

The below is closer to what I intended.

>>> If(t.join_will_notblock()) t.join();
