Yes, that's what I meant: you can construct it without locking a mutex. I got
confused by Johan's statement.

Actually, thinking about it, there's no reason not to give it a default
constructor: you'd just not be able to do anything with it until you
move-assigned a unique_lock with a mutex into it.
