My .000002
To me it seems it belongs at the FS level. When/how to use locks "may" be a repo
level function. The lock itself does seem to belong in the FS. It feels like
maybe it needs to be managed at the dir entry level as opposed to the file level.
You should still be able to commit to a branch even if head is locked. Right?
