You can only lock files, not directories. Therefore, it only makes
sense to set 'svn:lock' property on files.

It sounds, then, like you want to run 'svn propset' on every file in
your working copy. To do this, use your shell, or write a simple
script of some sort.

(Are you really certain that you want to completely disable
concurrency on the whole project? You want to force people to lock
*every* file before they begin editing?)
