There is a lockfile project listed on pypi:

http://pypi.python.org/pypi/lockfile/0.00

It appears to be pretty much completely bogus:

* It lists "no one" as the maintainer
* It refers to a nonexistent home page
* It refers to the Python Cookbook home page as the
download url

It does list an author mehlng@yahoo.com but I can't find
him (a couple google hits, none for Python).

I've sent an email to that address. I'll report back with
what I learn, but I suspect it's a defunct entry (and I'm
interested in using "lockfile")...

    I've heard nothing back from the listed author at this point.

    What's your PyPI username? I'll add you as a package owner.
