And again about standalone (system wide) file lock server.
WINE provides file locking capabilities, its realized in ntdll -> wineserver. 

I propose light solution for multiuser lock support - start existing 
wineserver as independent service under special user and use it specially for 
file locking purposes.  What the objective reasons do not do so?
It can be realized with the same code as already exist in wineserver. We can 
disable this mode during compiling (it depends how we realized 
wine_server_call special for file related functions).

Any suggestions?
