Are they actually doing fully-general predicate locks (able to cope with
arbitrary predicate conditions), or merely index range locks?  I don't
mind expanding the docs, but the context of the statement is the cost of
doing general predicate locking, and pointing to DBMSes that do a subset
case doesn't make that statement invalid.
