One could interpret a mtstates object as an heavy weight stateful object that
can be passed to other threads by id (also using ZeroMQ or other multi threading
and message passing solutions) as long as the other threads are living in the
same process. It depends on the surrounding usage and implementation if than
there are two concurrently running threads accessing the same mtstates object at
the same time (and therefore producing lock-and-wait scenario) or not.
