Here's a real use case to ponder: Dreamweaver's WebDAV interface requires
that all files (HTML, etc, etc.) be checked out before editing. However,
the Subversion clients (say a part of the group wasn't interested in using
Dreamweaver) would need the 'svn:must-lock' property set on those files in
order to know that the files must be locked before editing them in order to
play well with the Dreamweaver users. -- justin
