Just to clarify things here, the ACL design I'm working on doesn't
seriously affect the locking design. I'm only working on the premise
that the changes needed for adding ACLs are very similar to the changes
needed for adding locks, so I'm looking at implementing locks in such a
way that ACLs can use the same infrastructure, that's all. There's no
radical departure from locking-plan.txt.

You're sort of forcing me to get off my but and put things down in
