Directory locking: current goals

From: Brian W. Fitzpatrick <fitz_at_collab.net>

It seems that the consensus is that recursive directory locking is too
complex and riddled with edge-cases for us to include it in the current
round of locking design. So what do we want to do with regard to
locking directories? As I see it, we have two choices:

- Depth 0 lock: lock only the directory properties. I don't know how
useful this might be.

- Depth 1 lock: lock the directory properties and the contents of the
directory. That is, no other user is able to add or delete files from
the directory, nor to modify any of the files in the directory.

I'm leaning toward the depth 1 lock right now, but I'd like to hear
from the rest of the list on this
