Exclusive locking is the "next big feature" that the devs are planning
on working on for 1.2.

In the meantime, if this is a necessity for you I would implement this
using a pre-commit hook script. Two approaches I would look into are:

* have a text file where each line is a file URL followed by a tab and a
username. The pre-commit hook looks at this file for attempts to commit
a certain URL, and if the URL exists in the file then only the specified
username is allowed to commit.

* create your own versioned property, the value of which is a username.
The script looks at the property instead of the text file.

These are basically short-term hacks until a "real" system based on
tokens is implemented.
