Re: atomic locking

Have you a use-case for atomic unlocking in mind? Nothing comes to mind
for me. When unlocking something, you're sorta saying, "I'm no longer
interested in maintaining the exclusive right to change this." Does
that desire change simply because one of your unlock requests doesn't
pan out?
