Re: Locking functional spec: read-only WC

I think you're missing a fundamental aspect of the locking design. The
svn:lock property does not mean the file is locked; it means the file
*must be* locked before editing. Locks themselves are not represented
by properties. The working copy will learn about contention when it
tries to get the lock.

So the working copy does not have to know whether anyone else has a lock
on the file. It only has to know whether itself has a lock, which is
easy.
