That depends on how we would implement that. We could show a 'locked'
overlay if the file is read-only (i.e. locked by others) or we could
show the overlay if a lock-owner is assigned (locked by either
yourself or others).

That's not possible. You can't check to whom a lock belongs until you
contact the repository. Even if you could check the lock-owner
(username), that wouldn't help: a user can have multiple working
copies (e.g. one in the office and one at home), so the locks would
still be different.

That would mean showing an overlay if a file is read-only. Easy to
implement, and fast...
