You put the thread safety in what the c-function calls. Now if the
question really is that the setting of the function object instance
isn't thread safe... You would make the code that calls make_c_function
thread safe, by using locks for example. Note, calling the c-function,
and hence the function object, is thread safe AFAIK.
