[rancid] Lock individual router instead of group?

Does anyone have a patch that would allow rancid-run to lock only a 
router name instead of a group-name when -r is used?  We use syslog 
watching to trigger individual device runs to get a rudimentary blame 
log, but since all our routers are in the same group, some changes are 
mis-attributed due to locking.  We can do it directly by running 
control_rancid instead, but that runs into the issue of garbled commits 
from race conditions if multiple changes are made.

Any other solutions people have to resolve my root request (try to 
capture what user changed what lines) are also welcome.
