I have noticed that an increasing number of packages (qmail and many pop
servers) are using flock() to lock the incoming mailboxes before delivering
new mail or deleting existing mail.

Currently, most of the mail programs on NetBSD do "dot" locking.  Perhaps
it is time to change this to flock() and friends?
