Hmmmm I feel like I should nuance this a tiny bit. Yes, there is a big lock. 
Yes, it has a lot of contention. But, it only serializes the tile management 
(creating new tile info, swapping data to/from disk, etc.), not actual data 
processing. I'd say the most contention you get currently is due to the fact 
that it also locks during swapping, not because of serializing tile data 
accesses globally or so.
