The sentence you just wrote above -- "users could see that a file needs
to be locked" -- is *exactly* the reason the svn:needs-lock property
exists. If you're thinking about creating a new icon overlay that
means, "you should lock this file before editing", then you should make
it into a 1-to-1 correspondence with the existence of svn:needs-lock.

So your criteria for showing this new overlay would be:

    - the file is versioned && file has svn:needs-lock

That's all you need.
