Your patch looks good:
ejabberdctl works with bash and dash, and satisfies the 'checkbashisms' program.
When flock is available, it solves both problems (concurrent calls,
with limited names).
When no flock is available, it fallsback to the old code and behaviour.

I've commited the patch untouched, and then my minor changes in a second commit.
