I've always thought it was weird that the interator was unsynchronized.  
There's no reason each method on the iterator can't synchronize on the 
appropriate object to ensure consistency in a multi-threaded 
environment.  But, alas, Sun decided against it and just added a 
comment.  I haven't had a chance to look at what Paul put together, but 
I'm inclined to agree with Stephen here that we should behave similarly 
to java.util.Collections.synchronizedFoo().

Speaking of the naming proposal, have you had a chance to write 
something up?  I'm fairly certain I will have time this weekend, but 
don't want to duplicate effort if you've already gotten something put 
together that you just haven't finished/submitted yet.
