fuse is an API to implement file systems; it's not a file system by
itself. It is entirely possible to create a file system using fuse that
does not support locking.

I don't know whether coda supports locking, either; but from what I hear
about it, even if it didn't support it and an application which assumes
it does totally corrupts everything on the disk, you probably wouldn't
notice the difference from it having locking anyway due to the "quality"
of the code.
