Aside from the unthreadable API, ecpg has another potential threading
problem: it depends on a lexer and parser that might or might not be
thread-safe, depending on what they were generated with.
I'd advise just labeling ecpg "not threadable" :-(. Not much point in
breaking existing apps by changing the API, when you still won't be able
to guarantee thread safeness...
