No, somehow monotone always locks the whole database while running.
(I remember having some fun figuring this out when I had C-z'ed some
running monotone and then forgotten about it...).  I'm not entirely
sure why.

It really is locking, I think, not just a funny bug.  If I start a
monotone process and then run 'sqlite monotone.db', sqlite starts
up fine, but any commands give "Error: database is locked", a much
less ambiguous diagnostic than monotone gives...

Damn the Solar System.  Bad light; planets too distant; pestered with
comets; feeble contrivance; could make a better one myself.
