Hi Emacs devs,

I am using GNU Emacs (built 2012-07-21). I see the file naming
scheme for lock files is `.#<old name>'. I seemed to recall there was
trailing hash like this `.#<old name>#'. But on the Emacs help list I
was told there was no trailing hash in the past. So my request is, can a
trailing hash be added?

My issue in particular is, the lock file gets picked by a glob like
`*.cxx'; with a trailing hash, this would only match source files. This
can be a problem with tools that only support very basic globbing.

Thanks for your consideration.
