Sorry, maybe I was not clear enough. I did not have parallel multithreading in mind (which clearly would not work), rather incremental interleaved population of different IFD-s with data.

I believe this is not possible with libtiff, unfortunately.

I have the same problem. My library does interleaved writes to a set of separate TIFF files as data comes in, then in a second pass gathers up the separate TIFFs into a single, large image. It's ugly, slow, and needs a lot of disc space :-( but unavoidable, I think.
