As Simon explained, opening a file can't be interrupted in the way
that would be needed to do this without causing other problems. Plus,
you'll be locking a lot of files unnecessarily - don't you ever open
files to look at them, with no intention of editing them? I don't know
that there's any way to detect when an application is finished with a
given file without getting an exclusive lock at the filesystem level,
so you'd have to manually unlock the files every time.

Set svn:needs-lock on your files and leave it at that.
