* Codec is thread safe.
* The codec does not modify any global variables in the init function,
* allowing to call the init function without locking any global mutexes.
* Codec cleans up memory on init failure.
* The codec allows calling the close function for deallocation even if
* the init function returned a failure. Without this capability flag, a
* codec does such cleanup internally when returning failures from the
* init function and does not expect the close function to be called at
* all.
