How would you keep track of it?

The user is free to move their working copy at any time. It doesn't
break anything.

Suppose the user locks a file, then renames and/or moves the working
copy, or even moves it to a different machine. These are all valid
operations for users to perform on working copies, and the server is
never informed about any of it, because, except for this new lock-
tracking idea, I'm not aware of any reason why the server would need
to know.
