But does it have static data? Can *different* threads use *different*
databases in the same process at the same time, or not? If not, then this
patch's locking scheme *wrong*. But worse, we will have problems if LibVLC
is embedded in an SQLite-using programs, such as, hmm, Firefox? So, then I
agree we have to require thread-safe builds.
