//!This class is a condition variable that can be placed in shared memory or
//!memory mapped files.
//!The interprocess_condition_any class is a generalization of interprocess_condition.
//!Whereas interprocess_condition works only on Locks with mutex_type == interprocess_mutex
//!interprocess_condition_any can operate on any user-defined lock that meets the BasicLockable
//!requirements (lock()/unlock() member functions).
//!Unlike std::condition_variable_any in C++11, it is NOT safe to invoke the destructor if all
//!threads have been only notified. It is required that they have exited their respective wait
