[RFC] threading issues

thinking about the troubles people have had compiling gtk2-perl on non-threaded perls since the Glib config defaults to enabling thread safety support....

would it be reliable or advisable to attempt to determine whether thread safety should be enabled by checking %Config in Makefile.PL? if so, what would be a reliable way to check? something like

        use Config;
        $use_threads = $Config{config_args} =~ m/-Duse(i)?threads/;

is this a good thing? this will require that you build the extension with a perl configured the same way as the one with which you want to use it.

what do you think?  will this help?
