Thank you, Bill. The separate locking directory is something I did not
ever think,
you definitely won one more reader (and buyer :) ) of your book.
I belive, if the source directory tree structure is duplicated under
locking directory,
the scripting become trivial. I will probably have to prepare our own
lock/unlock wrappers
to help the developers to avoid wasting their time working on the file
locked in the
another branch.
Honestly, as much I think about it, as much it seems to me pretty
general pattern that might work very well.

Dear Steve, I proud you cannot back to the lock/unlock scheme anymore.
Unfortunately, I am not aware about some advanced MFC techniques
that allow regeneration of the resource files. FYI it is mostly the *.rc
files that make the problem, not the resource.h ones.

Thanks again,
Best Regards,
Moisei.
