II. New Client Behaviors
    B. The "svn:needs-lock" property
       1. Property as enforcement system
          The presence of the "svn:needs-lock" property on a file means
          that concurrency is disabled for the file and a user *must*
          obtain a lock on that file before committing changes to it.
          The server rejects any commit which modifies this file unless
          the user has a lock on the file. [...]
