I think it's a valid use case. Consider that I may have a large search-replace or other refactoring operation to run, and before I do it, I want to lock all affected files. They may be binaries if I'm using a binary-capable editing or search/replace tool.

Admittedly, I don't see this happening often, but I have encountered this scenario a few times, and sometimes it meant committing a thousand files at once. I wouldn't be very concerned about performance here, but I would be concerned if memory usage went unbounded for this and required me to break up my lock/unlock/commit operations.
