That's quite a good idea, although there may be problems for people with
red/green colour blindness, and it requires 2 overlays.

It's also a good summary of the information people are likely to want.
These locking overlays should only be shown when the overlay would
otherwise be in-subversion. In all other cases, we are doing something
with the file, so either we hold the lock, or there is no lock. Or
someone else has stolen it, but we can't know that.

Stefan, is it worth asking dev@subversion to include the svn:needs-lock
property state in the WC entry structure, or will that just make the
status calls as slow as the get-prop calls?
