Uh, if I have a lock on a file, it will be enforced by the server in
that you can't modify it. (Without breaking or stealing the lock, which
I think can be restricted by hook scripts if nothing else.)

If the file has svn:needs-lock set, then only the client will enforce
that you must lock the file before editing and committing it. But who
cares? You can't meaningfully distinguish between me locking,
committing, and unlocking the file in close succession and simply
committing it.
