Hi Eliot,

I'm no expert in C programming, but I suppose a global counter could be 
used to ensure that no other threads have modified the array before 
swapping the pointers.

Btw, I thought that object pinning would make it possible to get rid of 
the external semaphore table altogether. We need different plugin code for 
that, but I think it would be simpler and more efficient.

Why is #at:put: not thread-safe? Isn't it a primitive, so that no 
suspension point occurs provided both arguments are valid?

Happy New Year!
