  Right, I think nobody is discussing that.

  Not really, I'm afraid Holger was right here. As he explained concurrent
  access to same config dir by two different instances it's already
  possible, and unavoidable unless the feature is removed, which is not
  planned. Users are expected to know what they do when using
  --alternate-config-dir, otherwise better not to use it, like rm -f.

  This whole digression, which I didn't bring to @users in fact, has more to
  do with the name of the locking mechanism which _already_ guarantees two
  instances cannot access launching user's config. Nothing else.
