Hrm.  So, let me see if I understand.

You want a program to lock everything so you can mess around with nmh
internals with non-nmh programs.  Okay, I can understand that.

But then you say (in another message) that you want nmh programs
to not deadlock under our hypothetical nmhlock program ... so you
want to run nmh programs under nmhlock?  Or you want the option to
handle both nmh and non-nmh programs under nmhlock?  I am just
trying to understand what you want.

However ... I think this might be beyond what I'm personally willing to
implement.  Of course anyone else is free to write nmhlock (or whatever
you want to call it).
