That looks very nice indeed.  Thankyou!

I think I might change the lockfile format a little more, so that it
incorporates the type of host (local, tcp, ssh, etc.)  Then it will be
just "lock_localhost", "local_tcp_angry_192.168.1.128", etc.

Yes, of course.  I just need to work out a way to test it adequately
and then it can go in the next release.  Testing will be a bit hard as
it relies on the resolver's responses, but I'm sure there is a good
way to do it automatically and without needing special DNS changes.
