Sure, the DAV spec even allows for that. But we have no real plans
to add that.

The only reason we added exclusive locking was to allow people to
serialize access to unmergeable files. The 'concurrent' model
doesn't usually work for binary formats. But I don't think many svn
devs are persuaded that 'cvs edit/watch' is a useful feature to emulate.
