Whoops, not saracastic, just ignorant. :-)

I didn't realize that Dreamweaver generates plain HTML. So yah, here's
a case where some developers are using a tool that locks the files,
while other developers may be concurrently editing the files in emacs.

This is a good example of a situation where it would be wise to use the
'svn:needs-lock' property as a communication system, even though the
files are mergeable. Thanks!
