Something like that, but it needs to be possible to configure it to
not ask/not claim, if that's what the user wants.

As an example, in my .emacs, I set desktop-load-locked-desktop to nil,
and then I add code to desktop-not-loaded-hook that only steals the
lock if the PID of the old lock does not match a running Emacs
instance; if the old Emacs is still running I only throw a warning.
