As I mentioned in IRC, I don't like the idea of 'svn st' getting a lock-
owner field because in the -v case, that would further push the path off
the right side of a typical 80-column display (the paths already start
in something like column 40). There are only so many piece of
information you throw at someone before the noise level is just too
high.

I'd propose a simple 'lslock [-u]' subcommand, but there are those among
us who are frightened by growing the size of the command set (as if
folks have trouble wielding a Unix shell because of all those crazy
little commands you have to remember...).
