Is the ithreads implementation safe?

According to Network Programming with Perl, "the 5.005 thread
implementation has known bugs that can lead to mysterious crashes ...
in fact, the Perl thread documentation warns that multithreading
should not be used in production systems."

What about the newer ithreads implementation? Is it safe? Would you
use it in mission critical systems? Finally, what do you think about
the safety/reliability of the Thread:ool module?
