Don't worry about supporting that case.

Most of the people who abused Mutex by trying to use it like a semaphore
have been weeded out since I modified fastthread to raise an exception
for unlocks by non-owners.

(I believe the latest 1.8.6 patchlevels also throw an exception, if
you're using the C Mutex implementation which is based on fastthread.)
