I like Toby's suggestion of throwing up the list with check boxes, ala
the commit window as it stands today.

Random Question: What does "lock" do on a directory? Lock all files?
Or the directory itself? Recursive? I'm sure this is all answered in
the SVN specs for 1.2 somewhere. Does it impact the GUI at all?
