Responding to myself: The only problem which remains is that the user
is currently being given no choice to either steal locks or vacuum pristines.
They can only run these operations in combined form.

Daniel, I'm thinking that reverting r1802797, which changed the default
behaviour of 'svn cleanup', may be good enough to address your backwards
compat concerns, while still giving people a choice to remove pristines
without risking a disturbance of other active clients.
