Question about pidfiles

I am currently packaging imwheel. However, there is a problem.
imwheel wants to create a pidfile when it is run. However, this
is fundamentally against the way X works - it means only ONE
instance of imwheel can be run on one machine at a time (as
opposed to one per X display, which would be the correct thing
to do).

What cna I effectively do about this (or should I email the
author and ask its behaviour be changed)?
