Yeah, that's another issue, he rejects the whole notion of concurrent
versioning, i.e. checkout-modify-merge. He has insisted that he will
never do anything except lock-modify-commit-unlock.

That's why I said, if you want to have some fun, be a fly on the wall
at one of our staff meetings the next time concurrent versioning vs
lock-modify-unlock comes up. :-\

<JX>>>>>And, guess what, one can most certainly lock individual files
in svn.<<<<<

How does that work? If he checks out a directory, then flags one of
the files to be locked and modifies that, then modifies a different
file without remembering to lock it first, won't that, like, tear a
hole in the universe or something? :-)
