BrowserUk:

I used to do a good bit of real-time programming (motion control systems) and haven't used recursive locks. I once thought to use them, but a more-experienced co-worker gave a similar argument against them, and suggested an algorithm change. Since then, I hadn't come up with any need for them. It's pretty convincing to me.

When your only tool is a hammer, all problems look like your thumb.
