Aha, good point. So then the commandline client and TSVN would be
equal in this feature -- both browsing remote locks via 'status -u'.
Perhaps in 1.3, we can improve svn_client_ls() as you suggested, and
then both TSVN's repository browser and 'svn ls -v' would show remote
locks.

Anyway, it would be nice to know exactly how big the performance hit
is... it would be nice if you tried to show locks in ther repos
browser, just to see.
