Agreed. Because if you have an app that loads a plugin, you have no idea if it is going to use threads or not, even if your app is not multi-threaded.

On UP systems, the locking primitives are light-weight enough that the overhead doesn't matter, and MP systems could possibly take short-cuts internally if no threads other than the main thread exist.
