You are correct. If an svn 1.2 client (linked statically to libsvn_fs
1.2) creates a lock in the repository database, and then an svn 1.0
client (linked statically to libsvn_fs 1.0) tries to the change the
file, it will succeed in ignoring the lock... it won't even know that
the lock-tables are present.

A good argument not to use file:/// very often, I guess.
