I think this was NACK'd last time since we did not want to promote usage of recursive locks in the code. If we provide an object that provides recursive locking we de-facto promote this usage. As Pavel stated in his review. Ideally the NWfilter code will be converted to a less convoluted locking not requiring recursive locks prior to this so that we don't have to add recursive locking at all.
