a) Sorry :-/
b) The use case is if our branches contain mergeable
and non-mergeable files. All users must work on
branches, only sysadmin can commit to trunk - to keep
it at a minimum level of 'excellence'. So because of
this, if a user wants to 'work' on a binary file in
their branch. It would be great if they could lock it
in the main - as a signal to others and then work on
it in their branch..

hope that makes sense?
