They include adding to mail drops, moving files between and within
folders and editing context files (mostly to rename or remove sequences).
I don't know which of these things require what kinds of locking.
I don't want to learn. And most importantly I shouldn't have to know.

What I need is a single locking mechanism that incorporates all internal
locks and that would allow me to know I wasn't stepping on any nmh things
going on and that they wouldn't mess with me. I understand that this
would often result in unnecessary locking.
