Hello Chris Warrington,
Thanks I'll look into that. I agree, it is off scheme.

  Going a little non-PLT-Scheme here...

  I'd take a look at the LockFile, UnlockFile, and CreateFile WIN32 API
  calls. You should be able to use them with foreign.ss. You may need to
  create a new port type to do this locking nicely.
