Have fun there! But I think you will get the very same answers as here...

Meaning to abuse the svn:needs-lock property as I already said in another thread
at dev@.

You can get the latest recent informations about locks with "Check for
modifications", without needing to update which can cause much trouble. Imagine
someone changed a file in the repository, but you don't want to merge them into
your local modifications right now because you are not finished yet. So you
can't do an update because that would force you to merge your changes.

By using "Check for modifications" you do not alter your local files and
therefore there is no need to do any merging at this time. Of course you should
update and merge your changes with those from the repository before committing.
