How could we possibly do that? Threading without locks will cause
hundreds of unpredictable segfaults, inconsistencies, etc. These
problems aren't detectable; that's why locks are needed. If you don't
init threads, there are no locks, so if you still use multiple threads
pretty much everything is going to break in pretty much every possible
