Given that this code is untested, undocumented and broken, I'm inclined
to remove it.

I'm not sure how Blocker is intended to be used. My initial thought is
that this could be replaced by locks, or something like them.

Some searching found
and the situation described there sounds like it would be better solved
by using Trigger steps. (Or some suitably extended version of that, now
that Trigger can target any scheduler with the right interface)
