Need To "Lock" Many Files Within Multiple Folders

From: Marvin Toll <tollm_at_dteenergy.com>

* Objective Statement *
We have folders of (.class / .xml / .txt etc. etc.) artifacts matured over many days.  Once they are certified for promotion to our Integration environment, we would like to prohibit any further changes to the artifacts.  Thus we can be assured they are viewable, but not alterable, before future promotions to our Quality Assurance and (later) Production environments.
 
* Initial Thinking *
We anticipated using the two locking mechanisms within Subversion to meet the objective:
 
  svn propset svn:needs-lock  (for communication)
  svn lock                            (to lock the artifacts)
 
* Scalability *
Unfortunately, we are finding executing these commands against potentially hundreds of artifacts in differing directory combinations and depths to be problematic with the lack of recursive capability apparent to us (for both commands).
 
* Options? *
Short of copying these files to another project that has "read-only" access; Are there some solutions for meeting our objective?
