The reason behind having a lock icon showing on the folder level is
because we have a development working folder accessed by all our
system programmers which contains multiple sub-projects that later
compile into one. When someone is working on a project, they are
required to lock it as it is mainly binary files. This is done at a
folder level.

I just thought it would be handy to show the lock icon on the folder
if there are any locked files inside as it would be easy for our
programmers to identify the lock state of the project. I hope I'm
making sense.

Thanks in advance.
