Well, if you can't diff/merge the sucker than having two people make
changes at the same time is pretty pointless. Thus upgrading from a soft
lock to a hard lock. VSS takes the cheesy way out and decrees that all
binary files always get hard reserved checkout locks. Normal files in
VSS are checked out on an advisory or reserved basis depending on a
repository configuration option, IIRC.
