I came up against the same problem a few days ago. My tentative, short
term solution is to write a pre-commit hook script that checks the paths
in the commit against a registry of locked paths, and a CGI script (or
similar) that allows users to manage this registry. In the absence of
true locking, I think this is the best solution (although it's not very
beautiful, I agree).

Neither of these scripts has been written yet, as far as I know.

My long-term solution is of course to get locking implemented, and I'm
working on that, too. :-)
