trying to integrate, test and sanitize the git patch; does anyone know the
significance of the flock in control_rancid around commits:

+           git )
+               (
+                   flock -x 200
+                   git add $router
+                   git commit -m "$message"
+               ) 200>$BASEDIR/.lockfile

git must do its own locking, and rancid does its own per-group.  so,
paranoia or some special git thing?
