I'll write the documentation, either for the code as it is, or for any
replacement we decide to use.

I didn't submit documentation (or a Makefile, uninstall_otherlock.sql,
etc.) only because I didn't know if anything was going to be done with
otherlock now. I just wanted to mention the existence of the code.

Fine with me. Two questions:

- Where would the code live, if it were in core?
- Shall I hack up the API you suggested in your earlier message?
