I don't think that would save any time at all, or reduce the complexity.
The only result is that you'd have to implement the whole thing again in
libsvn_fs and mod_dav_svn -- it wouldn't save you from making the client
lock-aware. Because, like it or not, it must be: if it isn't, then
you'll have some clients that honour locks, and some that don't -- and
IMO that's even worse than lying about LOCKs.
