Add shlock(1), a program for the safe creation of lock files from shell
scripts. It's uses the same algorithm as implemented by Erik Fair, but
is easier to read and more stricter in checking for error conditions.
I'll leave it to someone more documentation savy to either write a nice
manpage from scratch or include the NetBSD version. The latter has a
small bug BTW, the script uses link / unlink and not rename :-)
Why don't you just grab from NetBSD version and let someone to
improvement it? You are breaking about what's great about BSD, IMO.

Yea, people (me included), please try to keep docs current for any changes you make! Community, complain if there is docs missing! We had good documentation in the first place, and it should only get better, not worse.
