I do agree that the double-label approach is more future-proof way,
especially if we anticipate that there will be more code after the
"attempt initial ref transaction commit" block before the
packed-ref-store is unlocked.  On the other hand, introduction of
the locked_cleanup label can be done as part of such a change that
adds new code that needs to be skipped, so I am OK with what is
queued there.

Thanks, all.
