Maybe you underestimate how many people use file:// to access
repositories. I expect the vast majority won't be in scenarios where
locking is important, but I'm a little worried about the possibility of
one attempt to play with the feature leading to a major hassle. Perhaps
you could include a script/tool to downgrade the repository without a
dump and reload.
