ManagedLock sounds like a good idea as it wouldn't break existing code and could then be used for other mechanisms than concurrent Lock's.

Just a thought (although I contradict one of my earlier posts): If Locks
seem important for being handled by ARM (and I think they are), why not
allow a seperate Interface for ARM that results in the appropriate code?
Maybe a reduced Lock-Interface (e.g. ManagableLock) only containing the
methods lock() and unlock().
The main argument to me for treating Locks additionally to closable
resources is to give a more complete resource management construct to
developers that prevents the (to be expected) ugly solution as being
discussed on this list.
