They're not quite the same. They're both almost, but not quite, exactly
unlike tea. :-p

Yes. And it doesn't have to be done now, because at this point I believe
that ACLs are too big for 1.1. I'm hoping for 1.1, of course, but I
won't push it because locking is more important and we do have a few
quite satisfactory workarounds for authz.

1.x rather than 1.1, but yes, I believe that if we can add locking
before 2.0, the same should be true for ACLs. At least I've not found a
reason to the contrary yet.
