Userlock needs to go into core, not get removed; this was discussed in a
previous "let's clean up contrib/" thread. If it's not going into core
in 8.2 then it needs to stay in contrib.

People then didn't seem receptive to my suggestion that the existing
userlock code was non-copyrightable (on the grounds of being pure
interface), but that difficulty no longer exists now that Abhijit has
posted his clean-room rewrite (look for "otherlock" in -patches).
Perhaps he would be prepared to turn that into a patch against the core...
