Point of clarification: inside the "library file", the UDFs should be
wrapped in a cflock right? This way the cflock is inside a thread and not
around the application? I don't recall reading anywhere (other than above)
that having a cflock in application.cfm will block all thread? Is there a
reference or publication somewhere that has more information?
