I don't know... it seems reasonable if they need to do something in a
threadsafe manner.  Even e.g. Singleton needs synchronization, though it
doesn't currently use Mutex to do it (IMO it _should_, fastthread
weirdness aside).

I'm not really sure what the best resolution here is.  fastthread is
ultimately intended to become a patch to Ruby core, of course.  But that
can't happen immediately, especially as even with the patch in hand I
would still need to sell the ruby-core folks on it...
