There is work ongoing to improve the Unix-like clients' locking 
support.  At the moment, I don't think OpenAFS 1.4 or 1.5 have an easy 
way to do (either notion you suggested of ) what you want, but, it was 
easy to hack up a patch to do it (the first suggestion, I didn't want to 
think about the second one).
