This isn't a theoretical problem.  I am trying to run multiple .emacs versions
and I want to maintain the same customization options across Emacs instances.

If I open the .emacs file in one instance, customize it, then do the same in
another instance, they both have an open copy of the buffer and there are race
conditions as to which emacs version should be modifying the file.

Shouldn't the locking mechanism at least ask you what to do before editing or
saving the buffer?
