   I suppose that covers it.  Hopefully the reader understands the
   situations that that covers.

I wouldn't want to tug any harder on that particular string (i.e.
defining precisely what "protect" means), or else we'd end up needing
to include most of the GULP (Grand Unified Locking Proposal) in the
binding draft.

   One question though... does it have to be a write-lock?  I suspect
   this precondition even applies to non-write locks.

Since we currently only have definitions of the semantics of write
locks, I try to avoid speculating on what semantics non-write locks
may have some day.

Cheers,
Geoff
