hmm - that is all a nice and such - but is it really a good idea to do
this that late in the release-cycle ?
I think the most "natural" thing would be to replace the existing GPL'd
userlock code with the new one and discuss the API-change one for 8.3
and up ...

I think that's a reasonable solution, replace the existing (renamed?)
contrib with new wrappers and push core migration/documentation out to
8.3.  Then we are talking about one line wrappers here, not a feature
per se...
