Big +1 to this.  Eliminating the sync process is going to be the 
cleanest solution for the code that is stable enough to be usable with 
things like automatic syncs.  The less code that is left in incubator, 
the easier the syncs will be.

That said, I think there's only a few people (Doug, Mark, and Thierry?) 
who have done the promote to library thing, and I will admit I don't 
have a good handle on what is involved.  It may be that we need better 
documentation of that process so more people can help out with it.  I 
know Michael Still mentioned he was planning to graduate lockutils but 
didn't know exactly how.
