In mpich2-1.0.1, we have an initial implementation of thread safety.
I have not gotten all the MPI-IO tests to pass our full threadsafety
testsuite, but the simple IO tests seem to work.

That should work in theory, but the system interface is not developer
friendly. We can talk more about this approach if MPICH2-1.0.1 is not
working out for you.
