Ok guys thanks for all the responses. Having studied this a bit more
closely I can recap that protobuf messages are what's called
"effectively immutable" (according to terminology used in Brian
Goetz's book p.52-53) and need to be "safely published" to be used
across multiple threads. Just like Evan said in his second post.
