Ok, then we have a new strategy!

1. make svn_fs_lock and svn_fs_attach_lock refuse to create locks on
nonexistent resources. This is a 2-line change to the libsvn_fs
'switching' routine.

2. make mod_dav_svn check for a path's existence when creating a lock.
If it doesn't exist, do an autoversioning commit of a 0-byte file on
the spot.
