We have no plans to add this feature.

Subversion 1.2 doesn't provide 'hard' locking, but rather 'soft'.
(You can make it 'hard' by using hook scripts). By 'soft', I mean
that anyone can break or steal a lock at any time. The locks are
purely communicative.

You can emulate the cvs 'edit' feature by setting the 'svn:needs-
lock' property on every single file. This will cause all files to be
read-only, and users will have to 'svn lock' to make them read-
write. Then you can examine the repository to see who is editing
which files, by examining lock-owners.
