<atomic> is trivial, as most of the support is provided by the compiler.  As of Vista, Windows comes with some quite sane primitives for implementing <mutex> and <thread>, so it would only be 1-2 days of work for someone to write the implementation for libc++.

I'd suggest that the total effort that has gone into this thread so far is close to the amount of effort required to add the missing support...
