Sure -- it checks whether fcntl(fd,F_SETLK,&flock)==0.
...unless you mean actually checking at runtime to see if it's
possible to violate a lock that has been "granted". Interesting.

run this by the sqlite people.

factors that might prevent my changes from having any hope of being
accepted upstream. But the autoconf-style "don't believe it until you
witness it" approach sounds very promising.
