I'm +1 for having the SSLMutex code autogen a bogus fname. I can add
this quickly... but please read below.

Also, despite the comments, we don't really honor it. For example,
proc_mutex_fcntl_create() doesn't require it and is smart enough
to do the right thing. So maybe it's more an issue for APR (that
is, have each implementation not only determine if an fname is needed,
but also create one ala proc_mutex_fcntl_create(). In fact, I
would almost kind of prefer that since naming conventions could
vary. For example, would /tmp/apr879879 be OK under Win32? Again,
this is just the sort of abstraction I think would be prefect in
