Except the argument can be made that locks could be implemented as
temporary ACL's without history and a moving node-rev (if committing
doesn't free locks, since I don't remember where that argument ended, if
it did). If we already had ACL's, we could [quickly] have locks too,
but locking alone isn't going to make is easier to implement ACL's.
