Hi Balazs,

I think we're fine for now - the main thing we will need is some kind
of KSS event corresponding to onFormUnload, so that we can release
locks if a user clicks away from a page without saving or cancelling.

Speaking of which, how is the KSS merge work going? What remains? What
help do you need?
