OK. I'll have to add code to accomodate that (I would assume that
there's already code somewhere to do this).

If the file has local mods, we should either do nothing or error out.
What do you think?

Yes. That would effectively remove svn:needs-lock and flip the file
back to read-write.

Do you think that that's a problem?

I agree. This will be one of the cases where the file will be set to
read-only only on commit.

And then flip to read-only on commit, right?
