Okay, so it will be a while before locking is available. Is there any
"read-only" property?

I'm using subversion for perl module development, and I've been saving my
release tarballs under trunk/data/releases (which makes it really easy to
script the cpan release process.) It just occurred to me that these
tarballs act as a sort of "golden copy" in the repository. They won't ever
actually change, so there's not a lot of point in putting them under revision
control. But, it makes them automagically available via the webserver, and
if I ever forget to increment the version number before a release build, the
plan is that I'd see the change and revert the tarball.

So, is there some way to put a "do not eat" sign on the file? So that, for
instance I'd have to use --force to check-in on top of it?

Thanks,
Eric
