1.5+dev pulled from master on Monday (2/24) morning

But other than the explicit calls to mark and Previous-Sequence,
sequences oughn't be being touched...? And I thought commands were
meant to open, close, reread sequences as needed rather than keep
a long lock? This is add-hook from rcvstore, via slocal.

Might rcvstore be keeping a lock on the sequence file for too long?
It just occurred to me that what I previously thought was mime-add-hook
running slow is probably the script waiting for filelocks;
although `mhparam lockmethod` reports "none" (David says the last bit
is a bug he's looking into)

Don't I know it, but it works...
