Is libjpeg thread safe?

An often debated question, but in my opinion `no'. The only safe way to use it is under a lock.

Are you claiming a lock is necessary for serializing all LibJpeg usage, or a lock is necessary per decoding/encoding session? In either of these cases, what exactly do you think is the unsafe stuff?
