Is R threadsafe?

Kannan Ramaswamy
Hi,
I am planning to embed R in a Windows application. I would like to know
if the R.dll dynamic library is threadsafe? Is it possible to have more
than one thread calling R functions concurrently? Note that I am using
Windows XP SP2 with R 2.2.1 on a dual processor SMP machine.

The last information I found in the R-devel archives was a mail from
Duncan Temple Lang on 07-Nov-2005 saying there was a plan to make it
threadsafe before the end of the year
(http://tolstoy.newcastle.edu.au/R/devel/05/11/3110.html).
