Good point. I wasn't clear. The cvs|svn|* update and automatic sync (not
dependent upon if the update did anythnig) are within a single lock. Crude,
but since we don't expect overlap, it ought be painless.

I wasn't think for the main public run, just for non-overlapping sub-runs
(that we wanted to make space for.) Just an RT.
