Automatic locking of files in repository

From: Helge Nuhn <helge_at_configo.de>

Hello mailing list!

I recently deployed Subversion in an office where several people work on
he same AutoCAD files. Of course, merging two binary files in case of a
conflict isn't exactly possible. So the regular workflow is locking,
modifying, committing. As the workers have never used a system like
this, it happens quit regularly that locking is omitted.
My question is: Is there a functionality (or perhaps add-on) to
TortoiseSVN that automatically locks a file when the user tries to open
it, monitors the thread that currently uses the file, so that closing
the application results in automatical committing?

I hope my description is clear enough.
Many thanks in advance for any statement,

Helge Nuhn
