It handles the live locks (that stop two people trying to commit at the
same time).

I wrote it to get around the 'waiting for unknown users lock' error which
can happen with the old FS locks.  It's also a lot safer on remote
repositories, because you're not relying on the network filesystem
synchronising its locking correctly.  As a side effect it seems to be a
bit faster.
