Even though the subject still says "atomicity of locks and needs-lock,"
I think this thread has gone a different direction --

When I first posted the original question, it was almost immediately
clear that there should be no atomicity of lock & needs-lock together.

Instead, the subject mutated into this --

Change #1 - Cache the most recently known lock status in the entries
file.

Change #2 - Optional. User-configurable. Disabled by default.
If the most recent update said a file was locked by some other user,
        (a) change the icon to gray,
        (b) set the read-only bit
just the same as it does when a file has needs-lock property on it.

Change #3 - Way off in the future, allow the "status" command to update
the local cached info about locks, rather than depending exclusively on
"update" to store the lock status in the working copy.
