My laziness. It's annoying to create different code for locking files
via different ways in different places. (The files are created/written
to in different ways, the locking can't simply be abstracted out into
generic code. At least not too easily.)

Of course the planned filesystem abstraction for v2.1/v3.0 should help
with these problems in future.
