Sorry to jump in so late here, but I haven't seen anyone bring up
gstein's big argument against locks-in-repos, namely that programs that
directly access the fs will circumvent any locks that are in-place
(e.g. SubWiki).

For the most part, I think I prefer locks-in-repos, but I just wanted
to air this one argument since I haven't seen it mentioned yet.
