Forgive me if I am being dense, but what would the implicit change be? I
thought that svn:lock was just a normal property that would be set and
managed like any other property. In other words, it would only ever be
set/modified/removed explicitly and would up the revnum when committed.

There has been a lot of conversation, so perhaps I have missed something?
