Comment (by johnjamesjacoby):

 Agree with everything.

 The edit_lock implementation in bbPress now is basically the same as
 what's in wp-admin already, minus the heart-attack API that would
 inevitably kill some things.

 It means when someone with an `edit_topic` capability is actually editing
 a topic from the front-end, it adds some meta data to the topic to say so.
 It's good for 3 minutes. Once three minutes are up, either they're done
 editing, or they've taken too long. Once they hit update, the lock goes
 away. Once three minutes are up, the lock goes away.

 It's a decent and inexpensive middle-ground that should help dodge the
 toggle problem, too.
