Checkout every file as read-only; make some of them editable with a explicit command.

Hello,

        Is there a way to checkout files in read-only mode ("protected" files), and
then enable the edition on just the files that one wants to work with?

        Some CVS users who are considering migrating to SVN asked me this, because
that's a "feature" that they use frequently. I don't know much about CVS,
but they tell me that, with it, it's possible to checkout files in protected
mode and then issue a "cvs edit" command only on the files they intend to
change, in order to prevent accidental changes. All that I know about "cvs
edit" is that it is normally used in the context of watches; howewer, they
don't use it for change notification, but rather just as a protection
mechanism.

        How could one achieve a similiar effect in SVN?

Thanks,
Esteban.
