Subversion is a concurrent system. Therefore, requiring locks is
considered a special exception, and thus requires extra work.
There's no magic button to make the whole system behave like VSS.
You have to set 'svn:needs-lock' on every file. There's no other
solution. (I'm not sure why you think it's so difficult...?)
