Having just cracked pcs open, it doesn't seem to.  It seems to create an
XML string which it then applies to the CIB with:

cibadmin -o resources -C -X $xml_resource_string

IIUC, that is compatible with my use-case of multiple nodes in the
cluster creating resources concurrently and not having last-write-wins
problems, correct?

Usually the multiple nodes are creating separate resources and in any
case where multiple nodes are creating the same resource (or adjusting
some global parameter), it's configuration is the same from all writers
so last-write-wins there doesn't matter, yes?
