See tests/t_undo_update.at for a description of a feature that would be very nice anyway, and would perhaps make this problem reasonably easy to solve Correctly.

Perhaps I'm thinking too simply here, but what's wrong with keeping a lock in the MT/ directory and refusing to run monotone in the directory if it's held?

it is possible that if you run two copies of monotone concurrently or abort a run part way through an update or checkout, the working copy may be left in an inconsistent state relative to its manifest. no harm done to database, and the gap is already quite small and unlikely to be a problem; also unclear whether it's possible to solve perfectly.
