[Openmcl-devel] reentrant locks support

I have been assuming that on CCL (at least on Linux x64)
ccl:make-lock and ccl:grab-lock allow recursive locking in the same thread.
( http://ccl.clozure.com/ccl-documentation.html#f_grab-lock  was not 
clear enough)
Could somebody please confirm.

Reason -
While I haven't found anything to say otherwise, there is a thread (no 
pun intended) going on in
bordeaux-threads-devel mailing list that says they'll remove support for 
recursive locks.
I do not want that to happen.
