"sur parolle" should be "sur parole"

I'm French, and I apologize for this... In French, the word is "parole", not "parolle". And nowhere have I found evidence that "sur parolle" would be an accepted English-spelling of "sur parole". Actually, Google finds Boost.Thread's documentation when looking for it.

I'd suggest not to use such terms in a technical documentation at all. Personally, I had difficulties to translate "sur parolle" when I was reading the Boost.Thread documentation, and I'm still not sure that I know what it exactly means.

Well, this is not the documentation itself, it's the API itself.

// #include <boost/thread/lockable_traits.hpp> 

namespace boost
  namespace sync
    template<typename L>
    class is_recursive_mutex_sur_parolle: false_type; // EXTENSION
    class is_recursive_mutex_sur_parolle<recursive_mutex>: true_type; // EXTENSION
    class is_recursive_mutex_sur_parolle<timed_recursive_mutex>: true_type; // EXTENSION

The expression is in the context "take his word for it".

The difference between the traits is_recursive_mutex and is_recursive_mute_sur_parole, is that the first can be verify some interface usage while the second states something that is not verifiable at compile time, and we need to take their word for it.

I'm open to suggestion on how to name these traits.
