Darcs uses a lockfile to avoid multiple write accesses to the same
repository. The locking strategy used by Darcs is believed to be safe
against race conditions:
- on local filesystems, under both Unix and Windows;
- on NFS mounts (even NFSv2), under Unix but not necessarily Windows.
I do not know whether our locking strategy is safe on SMB mounts; I
believe it depends on the details of the SMB implementation.
