[hibernate-dev] JPA2 locking followup...

As I said on IRC, my belief is that we should expand this set of lock
modes specifically to include NO_WAIT variants. Its really just a
question of for which modes it makes sense. The spec says
"javax.persistence.lock.timeout" is "defined by this specification for
use in pessimistic locking" so obviously OPTIMISTIC and
OPTIMISTIC_FORCE_INCREMENT are fine by themselves.
I don't think PESSIMISTIC_FORCE_INCREMENT needs a NO_WAIT variant, even
if we were to support using this mode on non-versioned entities.
I am unclear yet whether PESSIMISTIC_READ will require a NO_WAIT
Conversely for "with wait" semantics we will need to add support for the
lock acquisition timeout.
