Yes.

Actually, thinking about it some more - I think we could try to be
cute - have the post-lock and post-unlock hooks trigger a push to the
slaves of the lock database. This way the slaves would indeed have
the correct locking information stored locally.

We could use the bindings (or svnadmin??) to set/release the locks on
the slaves directly - that's probably a 'cleaner' way to do it. So, I
think we have a way for the repository admins to solve this if they
want to.

The only question that remains is about the merge-tracking info. -- justin
