Fwd: [Bug 2] Bindings needs to completely describe how bindings interact with locks.

By the way, I agree with this wording.  I would be even happier if it 
also required the server to allow LOCK on any binding to refresh the 
lock already existing.  Can we add that?

The title of the bug is general ("Bindings needs to completely describe 
how bindings interact with locks.") because when I entered it, I could 
see some undefined interactions and suspected there might be more.  At 
this point, I am not aware of any more undefined interactions, so if we 
satisfy the interaction between LOCK/UNLOCK and multiple bindings, I 
suggest we close the bug.  We can also make the bug title more specific 
so that if somebody comes up with a new undefined interaction between 
locking and bindings we'd encourage them to open a new bug.
