[R] Multi-threaded external routines with R?

Hi All,

While R is not multi-threaded, it supports dynamic loading of external
routines writ in C or Fortran.  It seems that it should be possible to link
in multi-threaded code as easily as serial code, as long as the external
routine syncs correctly and returns valid R objects.  

Is this true or ar there R internals that would prevent this?  

If it is true, can anyone point me to examples of this kind of usage?

Thanks very much,
