I used the bordeux-threads to do that, I attach the patch I personnaly
used. It works like a charm as far as I can see, but as I'm not that
familiar with Elephant's internals, I can't tell if everything is indeed
correctly protected. My applications using it were only put under
moderate workload.

Avoid globals is a Good Thing anyway, and hopefully 0.6.1 will be both
thead-safe and efficient (the lock solution adds a major bottleneck...).
