Doesn't the above just "work" assuming that the system in question is
using FCNTL_SERIALIZED_ACCEPT? At last look, there were a few systems that
didn't bother (or need to) use that... does this lock them out (no
pun intended)?

Or am I confused about the key point (i.e. some way of keeping scoreboard
in /tmp but "safe")?
