[tex-live] question about kpathsea_new() and kpathsea_finish(), and thread safety

I'm using these 2 functions in my library. Is it reasonnable to call
kpathsea_new() when my library starts and kpathsea_finish() when my
library finishes, and in between i can use all the kpathsea_*
functions I want ?

Another question: is kpathsea thread safe and reentrant ? I want to
find function names and glyphs of several fonts in different threads,
one thread per font.

thank you
