I was thinking about anyway, but there's the multiuser problem
of course (thought it would not be an issue in the use-case "I have a
dedicated web server and I want to access monotone from some web-app").

What about file sockets?
They do have permissions like usual files, I suppose?

Anyway even an authentication like "all or nothing" could be sufficient,
as having access to the file itself gives the same kind of
all-or-nothing authentication.

Or wait in queue for a few seconds and only then giving the "busy"
signal, but that wouldn't be a very big problem.

Do read-only commands (e.g. automate get_*) block the DB totally as well?
