Is it possible (or feasible) add an option for client tell server when
it started changing a file (like a lock without locking), make
this information avariable for other people using the same file and, maybe,
send it for all people working in this file.
I think it is a ruge improvement for very big teams.
Especially for very complex or safe critical applications.
