+1. You've said it better than I can. I don't see the reason for
lock-txns anymore. (And it doesn't seem intuitive to me at all for a
lock-holder to enter a "pocket universe" where she's the only person
able to write *or* read what she's locked.)

Branko, can you comment on my 2nd draft proposal? Yes, I know it's
phrased in a webdav-y way, but I can just easily formulate it in a
libsvn_fs-y way if you want me to.
