As I work on the ports for FSDirectory and FSLock, I'm wondering why the file system directory itself shouldn't be used to hold the lockfiles. If there's a write permissions problem, such as an FSDirectory on CDrom, disableLocks takes care of it. Is there some scenario having to do with mirroring that I haven't quite envisioned yet, or something else?
On a multi-user system this permits the owner & maintainer of an index
to give read-only access to other users. Thus, for example, an
operating system might maintain an index of installed manual pages that
any user can search.
