If you don't mean files needing locks and signalling that by setting them
read-only, then I guess it's currently not planned.

But to say it won't be in 1.2, that depends on what exactly you expect from
Subversion, how easily that could be implemented and whether someone will be
taking up that task before then.

So, if you want something like this, could you define the expected behaviour
and have a discussion about that on dev@? That's the way we work on these

I'm thinking about behaviours+reasons like:
- In what respect does CodeWarrior (or your tool) treat read-only files
differently than read-write files?
- When should files be set read-write, when read-only?
- When is it ok to overwrite a read-only file?
- If a file is copied, does it retain it's attributes?
- Does that include read-onlyness?
- How do directories fall into this picture?
