I mentioned in your previous thread their isn't support in svnsync and this
would require a third party script to maintain the locks. I've not looked
into it further though. To answer your specific question, yes. A user can
issue a svn lock on a write through setup, but it won't work in a consistent
and symmetric manner.

The results may differ as I have a 1.4 master repository and a 1.6.12 write
through mirror but locks on the master will not be passed through to the
mirror. Further, trying to force a lock/unlock fails as the mirror does not
think the file is locked but when trying to obtain a lock it will still fail
because it is locked.

If a lock on the mirror is obtained then the master can see it but it's in a
strange state depending on whether the -u flag is used when running svn

#svn status svn-proxy
     K svn-proxy/test.xml

#svn status -u svn-proxy
     B 70801 svn-proxy/test.xml

#svn status -u svn-server
     O 70801 svn-server/test.xml
