Shared locking is defined in
<http://greenbytes.de/tech/webdav/rfc2518.html#rfc.section.6.1> and
Basically, a shared write lock behaves exactly the same way as as share
exclusive lock -- the only difference being, that multiple shared locks
(and thus lock tokens) can exist on the same resource.

Write access is granted if you submit one of the lock tokens for that
resource and is denied otherwise.

Hope thios helps, Julian
