Shared and exclusive file locking using flock(2)
This library provides a safe wrapper around flock(2). It avoids problems when using locks in multi-threaded applications, while still exposing exclusive and shared locks.
It also contains a caching utility, fslock.cache.cache_get_or_set(), which can be use to safely cache files that are expensive to produce on disk.
