No, cause if you try it, you could commit a file with that property set
even though you havent locked it. The trick is to just remove the
read-only flag on that file, modify it and then commit it. Try it and you
will see
that locks as they are appear to be totaly useless.


p.s. Please do not start arguing about the meaning of the life and so on,
i need that feature as i said (i would like to commit only if the file was
prior locked by the commiter).
