 I did... it's at <URL:http://inetarena.com/~karlheg/Public>.  I don't 
know if it's _really_ the correct way to do this.  Someone who does
know should look it over.  I've just begun learning to write programs, 
so am very uncertain about that perl program.

 I think that the `lockfile` program that comes with `procmail` is a
better way to make lockfiles.  It is what I use now.

Q: Does anyone know if nfs safe locking is going to be a part of the
next Linux?

Q: Is that what libuuid is for?
