The issue is more bandwith than technical.  I haven't had time to sit down and
dig into locking.  Coordinating the two mechanisms may or may not be difficult,
as I haven't even begun looking at it yet.  That's probably the biggest area
for improvement (well, other than producing a stable release ;)).  This is also
the reason MS Office won't save directly to a Davenport web folder.
