What do you want to accomplish by locking the repository? This might
influence the answer.

For instance, if I want to prevent access to the repository while I work on
our server, I can prevent xinetd from starting the Subversion server, which
locks out users. If you are trying to obtain a reliable backup, it might
not be necessary to lock anything at all.
