Well, that's why we have beta releases, right? Eventually we'll merge
the locking-branch to trunk, and we'll spend a while looking for
obvious bugs, testing locking ourselves. Then we'll do a 1.2-beta1
release as always, so bleeding-edge users can try it out, and send
complaints about horrible behavioral choices. We can then change the
UI in a 1.2-beta2 release if we want.
