There is no way I would ever take that patch.

The amount of confusion in that patch is not acceptable. Randomly
unlocking the new lock?

That code makes everything worse, it's completely incomprehensible,
the locking rules make no sense ahwt-so-ever.

I'm seriously starting to feel like I should not have pulled this
code, because the future looks _worse_ than what we used to have.

No. No no no. Eric, this is not an acceptable direction.
