The documentation in notes/ doesn't mention such locks, although it
doesn't exclude them either, is there a plan to implement this sort of
lock without node? There are all sorts of corner cases: if I have a
schedule add directory 'foo' and I lock the path 'foo/bar' does that
stop someone else commiting a new 'foo'? Their 'foo' will conflict
with the 'foo' in my working copy, and resolving it will probably
cause me to loose my lock token.
