    Please reference count calInit and calShutdown

      Avoiding thread-safe singletons (please)

      Why are the calInit and calShutdown calls not reference counted (in a thread-safe way)? It's left to the client to manage the lifetime of these the CAL subsystem.

      For building on top of CAL it's necessary to protect against nesting these calls. I could manage these in a threadsafe way myself using a singleton but it would be nice if CAL could do this for me. It only requires a thread-safe reference count under the hood.
