If we think it is necessary to disable file locking I think an
appropriate config item is the best solution. It can be triggered with a
macro or an extension and that should be sufficient.

I woudl never make this visible in the option dialog, it should remain
an expert feature for people who know what they are doing. Otherwise we
have to deal with broken documents the next time.

The question is why the existing config item don't work where their name
is so promising ;-) What is their purpose at the moment?

Any volunteer to take a closer look on it? We should at least create an
issue to track it.

It's maybe a good opportunity for somebody who want to become familiar
with the code and will try to debug ;-)
