One possibility is to have a 'default' state which would be referred to
with NULL; that default state would use TLS. Suitable macro magic could
even remove the argument from the application.
We might want (instead) to have a per-thread 'current' state; this would
allow more flexibility while also avoiding some of the startup issues.
