I think you are restricting yourself to only Subversion as a client. I'm
purposely thinking of Adobe Photoshop with its integrated WebDAV-aware
client which supports locking. Photoshop will issue a LOCK on a resource,
but it has no concept of a 'youngest' revision. You couldn't even tell it
that. However, this is also why most WebDAV clients issue a LOCK then
issue a GET. This ensures that they get the 'youngest' revision of the
resource after they acquired the lock. -- justin
