I can see where you are coming from but it's not quite that easy.
Subversion has an option to keep locks when you commit, but there is
no option to add a lock to a newly added file. That would require TSVN
to do a separate lock operation and also require that TSVN prompts you
for a lock message. That is not an issue with the existing files
because they already have a lock message, but the new files don't.

Also, why do you need to use file locking? Are these non-text files
that cannot be merged?
