Detailed Description

       The MutexLock class is used to protect a section of code so that at any given time only a
       single thread can perform the protected operation.

       It use Mutex to protect operation. Using this class is usefull and exception safe. The
       mutex that has been locked is automatically released when the function call stack falls
       out of scope, so one doesnt have to remember to unlock the mutex at each function return.

       A common use is

       void func_to_protect() { MutexLock lock(mutex); ... operation ... }

       NOTE: do not declare variable as 'MutexLock (mutex)', the mutex will be released at
       statement end.
