Remember that those lock icons are just overlays on top of the
"regular" icon. Rather than code a special case in the Settings dialog
box to not show the Locked overlay on folder icons, I imagine it's
easier to just loop through all icon types and show the overlays.

Any directory-locking feature would first require support from the
Subversion libraries themselves. What would be the use case requiring
such a feature?
