*I* still think that if lock is explicit, then unlock should be explicit. =)

I think this entire conversation shows the absurdity of trying to merge unlock
and commit behaviors. There's a tangled web in that direction and it's very
unlikely to do what some think it will no matter *what* we choose.

As long as I can set 'commit-keeps-locks = yes' in ~/.subversion/config, I'll
continue to be amused at these threads... =) -- justin
