Sorry to disturb, but... shouldn't the read-only status of the file tied
to the property state *on the repository*? So, a propset adding the
property wouldn't do anything, the commit would make the file read-only
instead. What's the point of having an uncommited "svn:needs-lock"
forcing a local read-only file when everybody else can still freely
commit it?
