I've added an improvement (now the "waiting for lock" message
shows the PID of the lock owner) to address this issue.

> If the broctl lock is being held by the cron command it would be nice if the message that indicates a lock is already held would indicate if it is the cron command.  If multiple people are working with broctl the person that gets a lock doesn't know if it's because of another user or because they happened to be trying to do something while the cron command is running.
