The unlock operation is the same, so now you have to arbitrarily pick one of the "lockd" and chose release().  Why take a construct which is essentially a lock that can be acquired in two different ways and force people to view it as separate objects?

I much prefer a simple RWLock primitve, such as is popular in other programming environments, and add your convenient pseudo-locks on top.
That way, we are not forcing a certain myopic view of what an RWLock is down people's throat.
