Luckily, I will not use any xml stuff yet.
However, verifying all of the components that my program might (also 
implicitely) link to is quite a hard task... And it is very possible to 
make a mistake, thinking that the code is thread-safe while in fact it 
is not. Obviuosly this will lead to a total nightmare then. I was hoping 
someone can give an idea about thread-safety in FCL (other than xml) in 

Thank you!
