I do not really care if we do not have an overlay, especially in the first
version. But I have been following your discussions on the dev@ list and
I do not see what the problem is . IMHO, the overlay you would want to
see is if you held a lock on the file. This info is available in the
structure you get back, so you do not really need anything else. It would
be nice to know if someone else held a lock but that really isn't feasible
without a persistent server connection.
