Right, but if the last-modified timestamps of the text-base files were
compared to the working copy files, instead of the entires file
timestamps being compared to the wc files, it should be possible to
update them without taking locks. This would come at the reduction of
normal-case performance however, as it would have to stat() or
equivalent twice as often.
