Sorry, but you're asking for something dangerous!
If we would update automatically, we could end up changing your file
without you knowing about it (because you don't see that we're updating
automatically before the lock).
Also, usually you lock single files. By updating only those files you
want to lock, you'd end up with an inconsistent working copy.
