Re: [Issue 533] New - implement reserved checkouts

How would something like this interact with possible, future support for
WebDAV's LOCK and UNLOCK methods? It seems silly to go to the effort of
building some complex seperate system (involving seperate applications and
seperate scripts, talking to a seperate database, that might end up with
slightly different portability than the actual svn client, and then on top
of that shoving the responsibility for coding the lock support into every
GUI that wants to support it) for keeping track of locks and then find out
that the way it was done didn't end up helping to implement LOCK and UNLOCK.
