Well HEAD currently does this, but we still need to add
the mapping onto POSIX locking for interoperability with
native UNIX and NFS apps. The Windows locking will "look"
more correct, and we'll map onto POSIX as best we can.

I've been looking at this code in HEAD, and am about to
implement this mapping.
