   Sound good to me. Just be sure to make this explicitly documented. :-)

   I think Windows internally serializes DLL loading unloading also, but
you'd have to check the DLLMain() documentation in MSDN for more
information on that. I seem to recall it giving some list of things you
can or can not do there or you risk causing a dead-lock.

   Hope this helps.
