No, Subversion only operates on directories, not individual files. You
should probably read the discussion here:

http://svnbook.red-bean.com/en/1.4/svn.basic.vsn-models.html#svn.basic.vsn-models.lock-unlock

for the philosophy behind Subversion's design, which is (like CVS)
biased towards concurrent development. However, in the spirit of
TMTOWTDI*, you can also read this section:

http://svnbook.red-bean.com/en/1.4/svn.advanced.locking.html

for how you can limit concurrent development on specific files. In fact
you should probably read the entire book, if you want to do a complete
evaluation.
