Using libmemcache in a multi-threaded application

A general question for the list.
I'm trying to integrate libmemcache into a multi-threaded application,
and I'm looking for some pointers on how to do that? On a side note, is
it possible to "weight" servers with libmemcache, such that if I have
one memcached server with 2 GB, and another with 4 GB, the 4 GB server
gets twice the number of objects?
In poking through the library, I noticed it uses a global context to
track information. Will that be a problem if multiple threads are using
the library? Does each thread need its own memcache struct, or can they
I didn't see and semaphores or mutexes in the code, so I'm worried. I
also couldn't find any discussion of this on this list, or through Google.
Thanks in advance.
