Well, if you don't mind lock/unlock events showing up as commits, you can whip up a simple locking system using scripts.

Just set a property to your username to lock a file, and have a pre-commit script that aborts commits that attempt to change a file
with the lock property set and not equal to the username of the user doing the commit.
