This is over the top. F_LCK_MANDATORY is a Cygwin invention not known
to the outer world, *and* the behaviour of F_LCK_MANDATORY is
documented. If any project actually chooses to use it, it will do so
with the full information about the semantics given. Also, since
mandatory locking is not standard conformant anyway, the project
has to know exactly what it's doing. So what's your point?
