I think Subversion's locks are (or at least can be setup to be) just advisory.
That way, everybody can break the lock if the want to. As that, a lock is
nothing but a marker that you are working on a file, i.e. just a normal means
of team communication. In no case should a repository admin be required to
remove a stale lock.
