That might be a bit architecturally hard.  Personally, I am not sure about
doing that; the locking code is already pretty complicated (witness the bugs
you found) and I am reluctant to add more complexity.  Since the locking
can be configured at runtime, it's easy for a user to fix it if it is wrong.
