Disabling the svn lock, unlock commands

What's the best way to completely disable the svn lock (and unlock)
commands so that no one can exclusively lock a file out for

There doesn't appear to be a ./configure time option such as
"--disable-locking" to do this at the source level or at build time, so
I was thinking of adding pre-lock and pre-unlock hook scripts that just
return 0.

Would this work? Or would I need to do something else besides the
pre-lock and pre-unlock hook scripts to accomplish this?

My reason for wanting to disable the locking commands of Subversion
altogether is that I am planning on migrating my team of developers
PVCS to Subversion, and they are already used to PVCS'
lock-modify-unlock model to the point where some developers will lock
source files for weeks at a time.
