How about putting the user's comments into a data queue and letting a
single server program add them to the detail file, assigning the next
available sequence number in each case? That takes care of adding
comments. Now, what happens when they need to be updated? Because the
comments all belong together it's not just a case of single record
locking.

Would it be useful if the original sequencing was by tens or hundreds,
like SEU does it? Then one knows that the seq.# xxxxxx00 is the start of a
new comment block?
