What answers are you talking about? Same answers don't apply to
different questions.

Not at all.

I am saying, DON'T set the needs-lock property if you don't feel a file
always needs-lock. But as long as a lock exists on a file, it implies
that right now it needs-lock. So as long as the lock exists,
tortoisesvn can gray the icon and make the file read-only.

There is no abuse of any property in this situation.

That's right, you can find out the information, but you personally have
to remember in your brain, while computer memory is much better than
your memory. Why not let the information be cached on disk instead of
in your brain.
