Is the ithreads implementation safe?

    According to Network Programming with Perl, "the 5.005 thread
    implementation has known bugs that can lead to mysterious crashes ...
    in fact, the Perl thread documentation warns that multithreading
    should not be used in production systems."

    What about the newer ithreads implementation? Is it safe? Would you
    use it in mission critical systems? Finally, what do you think about
    the safety/reliability of the Thread::pool module?
