I can't help it, but this is by design, not because locking is or was
an afterthought: it would be really useless to have this information
in a working copy, because the minute it's stored in the working
copy, that information may be outdated.

If you want to have up-to-date information on locks, you need to
contact the server. That's what this 'non-availability' of information
is about...
