No, it belongs on the structure to which access needs to be
synchronised.  So I back off my earlier query and submit
instead that the lock-or-not bit belongs in the pool structure.
It's the pool routines that will be doing the synchronising.
When you create a pool that doesn't require synchronising,
such as one associated with a thread object, the bit in the
new pool structure gets set accordingly.

Proper treatment of this wrt signals requires some thought.
