//----------------------------------------------------------------------------
// Code within that accesses shared static or global data should
// should instantiate a Mutex object while doing so. You should make your own 
// private mutex where possible.

// For example:
// 
// UMTX myMutex;
// 
// int InitializeMyMutex()
// {
//    umtx_init( &myMutex );
//    return 0;
// }
// 
// static int initializeMyMutex = InitializeMyMutex();
//
// void Function(int arg1, int arg2)
// {
//    static Object* foo;     // Shared read-write object
//    Mutex mutex(&myMutex);  // or no args for the global lock
//    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!!
