I think we always want to make sure the sequence file is consistent, right?
To me the choice is between "two calls to folder_read()" and "one call
to folder_read() but have it locked during the complete command run".
For a web front end, the latter choice makes more sense.  I would argue
that the former choice makes more sense for the average user.
