JFYI, pthread locking/unlocking can be expensive (my impression from 
using them for the TimeMachine). So, doing processing stuff in (small) 
batches while holding the lock might be a good idea to help performance. 
(Then, for the Log framework the number of messages being passed is 
probably also not that high compared to the TM)
