What do any locks have to do with spooling? Historically, /var/spool
is for "stuff". Since then lots of things traditionally in /var/spool
have been moved into /var, like /var/cron, /var/at, /var/rwho, and so
forth, mostly for no clear reason but I guess because they don't have
anything to do with "spooling", whatever that means.
Anyway, the reason this whole thread started out with /var/lock is
that the Linux world apparently also did this with /var/spool/lock.
