Is KFS single-threaded?

    Sriram,
     
    I am evaluating KFS for an internal project. I noticed that your client
    API uses a global mutex for access. Does that mean that only a single
    thread can access the KFS from a particular client? If so, do you plan to
    change this in the near future?

      Sreekant,

      There is a single mutex that protects each of the public methods of the client API.  The intent was to serialize thread access thru the client object.  Clearly, you can have multiple threads from your application accesssing KFS thru the client code.
