A quick test suggests that `extern(C) extern shared` works fine.

As far as I can tell, `__gshared` is only ever ok-ish when you 
want to access a shared C variable in a single-threaded program. 
And then you're still setting yourself up for failure if you 
later add more threads.

So, never ever use `__gshared` (in multi-threaded code) ever.
