Yeah, that does kind of suck...

I suppose we could handle collisions by storing multiple lock tokens in
each file, and that would allow us to use a single file to represent all
the locks under a given prefix.

Of course then removing a lock kind of sucks because we have to copy the
file, removing a single lock from it, and copy it back over the
original. Ick.

Yeah, I'm not sure what the best way to go is.
