Subversion doesn't lock files, it locks directories. Subversion
doesn't have an entries file for each file, it has one per directory.
So a difference between files and directories is inevitable unless
someone implements a system that stores working copy metadata in a
single blob or database. Don't assume that such a system would be
faster overall :)
