 * Code within this library which accesses protected data should
 * instantiate a Mutex object while doing so.  Notice that there is
 * only one coarse-grained lock which applies to this entire library,
 * so keep locking short and sweet.
 *
 * For example:
 *
 * void Function(int arg1, int arg2)
 * {
 *   static Object* foo; // Shared read-write object
 *   Mutex mutex;
 *   foo->Method();
 *   // When 'mutex' goes out of scope and gets destroyed here
 *   // the lock is released
 * }
 *
 * Note: Do NOT use the form 'Mutex mutex();' as that merely
 * forward-declares a function returning a Mutex. This is a common
 * mistake which silently slips through the compiler!!  */
