How about the term 'locks'? We have working-copy locks, shown by 'L'
in the status command. BerkeleyDB has private locks that it uses for
mutexes and things ("out of locks" errors). 'svnadmin recover' and
FSFS both take out locks on ordinary files, to manage concurrent writes
("trying to get exclusive lock..."). And now we have a locking
feature, allowing users to create locks in the filesystem.

I can't possibly see how someone might get confused.
