Depends on the level of locking. This works best when the sort of thing
you're locking is "I'll need two tape drives, four dedicated processors,
and 20 minutes on the film burner to render this movie clip. Let me know..."
Or "this query will need to lock the employee's table, the taxes table,
and will need a write lock on the checks-to-print table."
If you're talking about individual objects, like at the
programming-language level, yeah, it's harder.
