It's actually a lot simpler than it seems, if you understand the major
problem with thread synchronisation: two threads should not access the
same data at the same time. That's pretty much it. So the less data
you share between threads, the better. The fewer threads that *change*
the shared data, the better. That won't solve all your problems, but
it will make them a lot easier to account for.
