Locking consensus(es) so far

From: Ben Collins-Sussman <sussman_at_red-bean.com>

Let me reiterate some agreements we seem to have reached, so far:

      - 'svn lock' only succeeds if file is up-to-date.
         (Possibly create 'svn lock --update' switch for convenience.)

      - If update would produce conflict on a 'hijacked' file:
          print warning, then choose WC fulltext, backup repos fulltext.

      - 'svn info' shows lock-token info, and also works on URLs.

And I'd like to suggest a compromise regarding whether or not
lock-messages are required:

            - client never requires lock-messages, but accepts them if
presented.
            - server doesn't require them by default, but accepts them
if presented.
            - admin can make pre-lock hook require them.
