Sorry, this is just kind of a drive-by proposal, but I didn't see it
mentioned yet, so I thought I bring it up:

How about something like

  svn lock [--persistent|--temporary]

in addition to / instead of the user-config, which would note (only in
the WC) with the lock whether to rather keep it or remove it on
actions where a lock might reasonably be released (in practice, it's
only "commit", isn't it?)

The suggestion is because I see me using both kinds of
"always-keep-locks" settings, depending on whether I expect to finish
up fast (like in 1-2 hours) and do only one commit, or if I expect the
work to consist of several stages (and so commits).
