Add utilities for liveliness lock files

To request resources from WConfD, requesters have to provide
the name of a file they own an exclusive lock on. In this way,
their death can be detected. Add utility functions to obtain
such a file name.

"""Lockfiles to prove liveliness
When requesting resources, like locks, from wconfd, requesters have
to provide the name of a file they own an exclusive lock on, to prove
that they are still alive. Provide methods to obtain such a file.
