There is already a lock file that would prevent this.

Heh.  Funny you requested this - the software that I based tla-pqm off
of (mini-dinstall) does support this.  However, it is also rather
fragile and unreliable, mainly due to the "dnotify" shell command.
Also, a daemon mode would add a fair amount of complexity to the
program, and in the end I don't see significant advantages to it.
