The warning definitely passes the "good enough" test.
That said, I don't see a compelling need for this. I'd (personally)
prefer mentioning 'propdel' in the help output which talks about
"svn:executable", which is currently:
svn:needs-lock - If present, indicates that the file should be locked
before it is modified. Makes the working copy file read-only
when it is not locked.
