I think the sync step needs to lock the directories as well, since
otherwise the working copy after sync can be in an inconsistent state.

I don't think so.

I'll raise the disk space issue in my next board report and will give
infrstrastructure and board a heads-up that we could use more disk
space, even though we don't have an urgent need.

Leo, do you think I should hold that back and you want to talk about
it at the infrathon?

If they overlap in time, the later will sync away contents the one
that has started first still needs.  Say "public" is still running and
somewhere down to project number 600 and Kaffe starts and syncs away
ant.jar.  Wouldn't be nice for public's project 601.
