Subject: [OT?] spamoracle concurrency

I couldn't find a forum specifically for spamoracle :-)

The question is: does spamoracle do any kind of locking on the database?
And what kind?  Clearly, if I pipe my mails through "spamoracle mark" in
my procmail (or maildrop, etc.) configuration, spamoracle may run and
access the database at completely unpredictable times.  Is it safe to
do "spamoracle add" while this is enabled?  Or do I have to slap a
locking scheme on top myself?

Bonus question, if locking is in fact done, does it let multiple
"spamoracle mark" processes through at the same time (which should be safe)?

I found to my dismay that none of the ~5 bayesian type filters I tried
today answers these (obvious?) questions in their documentation :-(

Experience with Asset Control an asset.
