True, but consider the scenario when you may have to release the lock and subsequently re-acquire it
in some cases. Apparently, you must be able to find a workaround by messing around with scopes and loops, but imagine how ugly it is going to look. As long as you to things in C-like fashion and treat a spinlock as a variable, rather than an object, you task is just straightforward
