It's hardcoded in the code...  you could build your own version I
suppose.  The only time you'll ever see it for 20 seconds though is
for something like a tag, and even that's fixed in the newer versions
so it'd be unusual to lock for more than a couple of seconds (two
people doing large commits may see this I guess).
