I'm curious: In libmpg123, I made the choice to have the user be responsible for any locking, but confine all mutable state to the handle. So it's not threadsafe if you access the same handle concurrently, but it is with differing handles. Does that count as reasonable?

The situation with hdf5 seems to be more complicated... or the users are not thinking about serializing things where necessary.
