Afraid not. This module will do locking between multiple processes on the
same system, but it is not suitable for .e.g. multiple systems accessing
the same share drive.

I think the most important use case for this multi-user sharing is each
user having his or her own computer, but sharing a share drive.

So locking needs to be platform independent, and can only use the (shared)
file system.
