Re: Exclusive Locking: design in a nutshell

Well, as others have pointed out, you've invented something that works
for WebDAV and doesn't work for Subversion. It's not really a candidate
for inclusion in Subversion if it won't work with Subversion clients.

Branko's modified locking plan seems to have limited usefulness from the
DAV client viewpoint; I'm editing a document in MS Office and I save it,
but my co-worker over in the next cubicle can't see my changes unless I
close the document (I assume that's when Office will do an unlock). If
we're going to invent something that doesn't work for DAV, there are
simpler ways to go about it.
