That's for those cases where you work directly on the repository, e.g.
via 'Webfolders' (the windows DAV implementation). In that case, you
don't have a working copy but you still lock the files every time you
start editing them.

But in the repo browser, it just doesn't make sense to lock a file you
don't have a working copy of.
