Feature suggestion: update/lock and unlock/commit

In our project we are using Subversion and TortoiseSVN to manage all of
our binary assets. For that reason we are using lock/unlock feature to
prevent users from simultaneously editing the same unmergeable files.
Unfortunately, many of those users are artists who still perceive the
Subversion more like a nuisance rather then the extremely useful thing
it really is.

They usually forget about updating their working directory before they
start working on a file or forget to commit files after changes have
been made. But they remember that the file has to locked before editing
and unlocked when the work is done. For that reason I hard coded the
additional functionality in our TortoiseSVN - "update before lock" and
"commit after unlock", which prevents from the most of possible conflicts.

I thought it would be beneficial for other TortoiseSVN users to have
such functionality available and I would like to file "official" request
for implementing it. Of course it should be only activated with
appropriate checkboxes in Settings screen.
