Global Locks

I notice that ddlockd is currently considered to be not ready for production, so I assume that it's not currently used. In this case, then, how should a maint task ensure that its processing does not get into a race condition with another server running the same maint task simultaneously? Is there currently any mechanism for aquiring a global lock, or do I just have to make sure that only one server runs my maint task right now?
