Ruby interpreter itself is single-threaded.
But win32 callback is inherently multi-threaded.
So I have no idea how win32-api C extension code should handle the win32
In case of WinSNMP, is it better to write another C extension code somehow
the win32 callback thread puts trap data into a queue, then ruby thread
polls the queue ?
