RE: lock:// protocol hacked in

But Greg - it's only syntactic sugar. The URL can be converted any way you like.

It's ra_local w/ an extra call when lock:// is used - currently converted to
file:// + David's lock file requirement.

Could just as easily be used to jumpstart an 'option' instead.

The other method that David was working on was making an entirely new layer w/
the same file access semantics as ra_local, called ra_lock. This is not that
method.

Were you objecting to the URL as well as the new access layer?

I don't know how to make this into an option. Any suggestions?

I guess I might only have avoided one half of the problem - avoiding the new
layer.

Thanks.
