[gdal-dev] Thread safe?

I am using a third party lib (imageio-ext) to leverage gdal in java code.
I have noticed that the imageio-ext folks have wrapped the gdal.Open(..)
call in a synchronized method.  I am assuming this is to prevent
imageio-ext users from hanging themselves with regard to thread safety.

I have looked at the gdal FAQ with regards to thread safety and the last
release that it mentions additions is 1.3.0.

What is the current status of the 1.9.* build with regards to thread safety.
