[erlang-questions] foldl over dets with concurrent updates

Does anyone know what will happen if you fold over a dets table while 
some other process is making a concurrent update?  I've done some tests 
on this and it appears that a foldl doesn't lock the table.  So I'm 
wondering if it will break or do something else goofy if the table gets 
concurrently modified.
