No, it's a half-assed attempt at enforcing the MySQL C API's
restrictions on the use of connections:
Proper locking is necessary in the face of threads. Right now, you must
handle this explicitly in your own code, but there's no good reason why
MySQL++ can't handle this internally. When we add proper mutex support
in v2.1, the Lockable feature will pull its own weight.

I'm okay with your reasoning to remove the ResUse unlock call. I don't
know for certain why it was there. Perhaps we are missing something,
and will end up with a deadlock when we get start using real mutexes in
