Not so Ubuntu related C question

I have a question, and just thought someone here may have an answer for me.
I am writing a library, with plugins in Thunderbird and Gaim (for right
now). The library is an API to edit an XML file. So both, TB and GAIM,
should not be able to issue a write command to the file at the same
time. My question is, am I able to use mutex in the library to allow
only one process to write at a time, OR, will I need to use a file lock?
