That's what I figured.

In a related note, are channels thread-safe?

What I'm currently doing is processing messages in one particular
thread. Messages are coming in from a multitude of threads, however,
so I'm putting them on a channel that is read by my stackless
processing thread. Is that safe, or do I need to ensure only one
thread is accessing the channel at a time?
