Ha! I have seen this too but have had no time to even think about working on

I have one question. Your patch mutexes out the acquisition of the file
lock. Do these thread mutexes apply only within the process, or across
processes as well? In the latter case, we could do away with the flock
entirely if we're in a multithreaded environment. In that case the #ifs
would move to the _dolock function and we'd have an _unlock function with
its own #ifs.
