If the file is opened for update, only 1 of those users will actually 
get the record locked.  As soon as the record is retrieved, update 
the record with a flag to indicate that it's being maintained.  The 
other user's program should check this flag and disallow maintenance 
if it's set.

When the first user is done, re-read the record for update, clear
the flag, and update the fields.
