Actually, you do need to think about the meaning of life: You really
need to think about your real problem, because there is *no* guarantee
that if someone has locked a file which he modified locally that he
will be able to commit that file (by reversing the modify/lock steps).

If you have an old version of said binary file, there's no way that
file is going to enter the repository without trickery (trickery which
will destroy the modifications of the file in the repository).
