No not at all. I will explain it again.

Stefan is adding a Lock option and he is also adding an "Unlock" option.
If you try to do a lock and it fails, you can "break the lock" of the other
user by using the Unlock option, so long as the UI provides some way for
you to add the "force" option to the unlock. A checkbox of some kind would
do this, and the error message when you tried the lock would have directed
the user to try an unlock.

I just think the UI should be clean and simple. Having lock react to an
error and lead the user through another process is neither. Stefan is
already adding an unlock option to the product, we should just use that.
