	Last I looked the only way to do smb locking was using a patched
gnome-vfs of just such a version; of course - ideally GIO would have the
interfaces we need there, but still no action on that front :-)

	Having said that - gnome-vfs created IIRC some horrible disasters wrt.
needing to be initialized in our startup path and worse (not sure if
that got unwound), so I'd be well up for disabling it by default myself.
I imagine it is only present / used on rather old machines.
