No, it wouldn't. I've got a half-baked LockManager branch sitting
around, but I haven't touched it for some time now. I don't use any
mbox here myself so it's not a personal itch.
As it stands, the LockManager code has the basic ability to do
locking using three lock types. I haven't worked out the nicest way
to stack them (ala dovecot) though in a way that will play nicely with
threads _and_ allow for non-block-wrapped calling.
