Only if it's shared, or you've screwed up with casting and ended 
up with an object which is actually shared being treated as TLS. 
A const, non-shared object can't possibly be mutated while you're 
doing stuff to it unless that same code somehow has access to a 
mutable reference to the same data. And in most cases 
(particularly if you're using pure heavily), it won't have access 
to any other references to the same data, so you can usually rely 
on a const object not being mutated while you operate on it.
