Comment(by achim):

 I think the problem of "locked" executables only exists on Windows: OSX
 and GNU/Linux don't have that limitation, for instance. So you might save
 yourself some work by having it platform specific for now.

 In addition, Mutexes do not seem to be a big matter since nobody had
 requested this before.
