Locking: RFC: svn:needs-lock behaviors

From: Brian W. Fitzpatrick <fitz_at_collab.net>

Here's my mini-document on svn:needs-lock behaviors. Please look over
it and comment (especially Philip Martin, King of Properties). :-)

svn:needs-lock behaviors:

- If svn:needs-lock is set on a file when the file is checked out, set
  the file to read-only.

- If svn:needs-lock is unset in wc, but update sets it: Set file to
- If svn:needs-lock is set in wc, but update unsets it: Set file to
  write mode.
- If svn:needs-lock is set or unset in both places: Do nothing.

- Setting the svn:needs-lock property sets the file to read-only
  (It also canonicalizes the value to '*')

- Removing svn:needs-lock sets the file to write mode.

- If the property is changed via propedit, we need to canonicalize it
  to '*'.
