Yep.  There are two server scripts included with the distribution.  One 
( does serial, blocking requests, so there are no 
concurrent-access issues.  The second server script 
( is threaded and non-blocking.  I have code in the 
script that manages read and write locks for each table.  I'm no rocket 
scientist, but I have been using at work for several 
months with no issues so far, so I am beginning to trust the code.  :)
