For the record, I'm against a new custom REPORT at this time. I'm of the
idea that we should see if this actually becomes a real issue. We can
determine this once we release 1.2.0-beta's and get real-world feedback.
My rough back-of-the-envelope estimate is that we can do about 5,000 locks
in a single HTTP request (~70 per single If header and about 80 If headers).

If you have over 5k locks, then I don't think it's unreasonable for us to
say that you need to bump up your header limit in httpd.conf... -- justin
