Hmm, I have just played around with that, and I found some things that
might be improved:

* The manual states that locks are released on files during a commit,
even if the files are unchanged. But this failes if no file has been
changed at all. So if I commit my working folder with file1.txt
changed, the lock on file2.txt is released. If I commit with no file
changed, file2.txt remains locked. I am not sure if this is intuitive.

* It is quite difficult to detect what files are locked by whom. There
is no direct counterpart to "cvs editors". You need to provide the
complete URL of each single file to get the lock owner. No way to
specify wild cards. No way to just use the local filename. How about
something like svn info file2.txt --remote to save the user from
typing the long url? Or how about a svn status --show-lock-owners?
Even svn status -u does not show the lock owners.
