Yes.  Actually, the credential cache code does locking internally, so 
if the threads are all using the same client principal, you should be 
able to share a credentials cache.  (But any race conditions that might 
exist between processes accessing the same on-disk ccache will still 
exist in multiple threads independently opening and accessing the same 
on-disk ccache, and may require different fixes.)
