our official statement still is you may use multiple threads on a session that 
just read but a single thread on a session that writes. in addition there's also 
the scenario where one thread saves changes on session and those changes get 
propagated to other sessions that are accessed by other threads.

as for multiple threads on a single session instance I personally prefer a more 
coarse grained synchronization to avoid monitor contention. see: JCR-890.
