My understanding is that lock information is propagated to working copies, but that the server enforces the lock? I suppose that an "Update" operation would transport a server-generated lock to the client at some stage?

If locks can only be acquired in the presence of a working copy, then this would be something in Subversion that I'd rather see redone: Generally speaking I believe there is value in simply telling the server to lock a file - it allows lock operations without requiring a working copy.

Why not? After a recursive "acquire lock" operation, it would be the most user-friendly option to offer ;-)
