So the 'problem'; which you've again not explained; is that debugobjects
has the following lock order:


And you seem to want to tag '&db->lock' as terminal, which is obviuosly
a big fat lie.

You've also not explained why it is safe to do this (I think it actually
is, but you really should've spelled it out).

Furthermore; you've not justified any of this 'insanity' with numbers.
What do we gain with this nestable madness that justifies the crazy?
