Agreed, it's six of one v. half a dozen of the other.
The only reason I suggested replacing the 'in svn' overlay with 'green key'
is to act as a clue that locking is now a possibility. You could think of it
as a paradigm shift :-)

It depends upon which you would want more 'visible'.
One person may be more interested in the editability of a file while another
is more interested in the locking attributes. This can be done with
alternate icon sets depending upon personal preference.
We just can't reliably show all three overlays.

Smoke and mirrors, agreed. We already have multiple icon sets.
