[TSVN] Locked overlay

While trying out the locking feature I gathered some more information.
And a 'locked' overlay seems more and more something we shouldn't do:

- the working copy only has the information if a file is locked by the
working copy itself. No information about a file locked by someone else!
- if the svn:needs-lock property is set, the file get's the readonly
flag set, i.e. apps can't save such files anymore (as long as the
working copy doesn't have the lock on such a file).

The only thing what such an overlay could show is:
- file is readonly
But we don't really need an overlay for that - the explorer already has
a built-in column provider to show the file attributes.

So what do you guys think? Should we implement a 'locked' overlay at all?
