i should also say...i can't guarantee all the code will work with
multiple writers.  there are some features (like ^Ec|) that would
probably break badly...and possibly others.  there was an inherent
assumption that only one writer exists at a time and the code does it's
best to both enforce and take advantage of that fact.  it would require
a full review to really see if those assumptions are there, but my
instinct says things probably wouldn't work - and in bizarre ways.
