Batch OpLocks: Are they used much these days ...

I am doing some work with Samba where I am mapping OpLocks onto a 
distributed file system with a delegation mechanism for managing caching.

Batch OpLocks look like they will give me trouble.

How frequently are they used?

I am thinking I need to promote Batch OpLocks to Exclusive Oplocks so I 
can map them to write delegations.

Does anyone know if this will cause problems?
