Response to: handling overlapping/simultaneous page edits

TWiki accomplishes this by locking a page when you edit it. The page is unlocked when the person editing it saves their changes. If a user locks a page, and never unlocks it, it will automatically unlock in an hour (or something like that). There should also be some options to tweak this behavior.
