Problems arise even without moves, consider editing, adding and then
deciding not to add:

  $ svn lock dir/file1
  $ edit dir/file1
  $ svn lock dir
  $ svn add dir/file2
  $ svn revert dir/file2
  $ svn unlock dir

- Can I lock dir when dir/file1 is locked, or will I have to
  revert/unlock my edit first?
- Do I end up with two locks on dir/file1?
- When I decide to revert/unlock the add, does that remove my lock(s)
  on dir/file1?
