I guess I don't fully understand why it's worse for them. It should be
functionally equivalent, albiet with a frame or two of the pointer being
locked or unlocked at the incorrect time, which really doesn't matter.

Implementing persistent locks using only oneshots is basically a single
line of code afaict.
