[Test]
public void ThreadExtensions()
{
    var cacheLock = new ReaderWriterLockSlim();
    var innerCache = new Dictionary<int, string>();

    var value = "value1";
    var readvalue = string.Empty;

    cacheLock.Write(() => innerCache[1] = value);
    cacheLock.Read(() => readvalue = innerCache[1]);

    Assert.AreEqual(value, readvalue);
