Don't worry, I'll veto any immediate removal of functionality ;-)
The correct way to handle this is to add some better userlock
functionality and deprecate what's there. We can remove the crufty
stuff in a release or three after it's been officially deprecated
... but there is no reason to remove it immediately. It won't conflict
with a better version, just exist alongside.
