Heh. If only that were actually true. I was kind of surprised when Ben
started writing the auto-versioning code precisely because it's utterly
useless without a full-blown working LOCK.

So, I'm not so hot about supporting an Apache directive that makes LOCK
work but meaningless. However, I wouldn't mind so much #if 0'ing out a
useless LOCK verb. That way developers who know what they're doing can
suffer their own trama from doing such a thing. I say this so that folks
who want to do this work can do it and have it merged in. The choice of
#if 0 was very specific btw, I don't want the threshold to running this
code to be just adding a -DUSELESS_LOCK flag to building Subversion, the
threshold should be much higher.
