I did this one by reusing Tarmac's PID_FILE in the config.

Done. SAs need to change the tarmac config file to look like:

allowed_lock_period = X where X is the amount of seconds allowed for
the lock to be considered OK.

If the lock file is in place for less than the amount configured,
tarmac will return and log the amount. If the lock file is in place
for more than the amount configured, tarmac will return an error and
show the PID and the lock file age.

>  3 if lock file exists, error includes how long it has been around.  That's easy enough to do without (just look at the file yourself), but a nice convenience.

Done. It'll log the lock file age and pid as explained above.

Didn't do this one.

Thanks for the review.
