Is the locking harmful to MH?  I'm wondering if it might just be
simplest to leave the locking in and unify the codebases completely. 
That might also allow for crazy and unexpected uses of MH.  (Like a
forgetful person starting something up in a second terminal at the same
time as something is running in the first)
