Well not really. Locks aren't a property so none of the inheritable properties
work helps here. Inheritable properties also already have RA support (which is
a big reason to prefer a 1.8 server to be used with a 1.8 client since the RA
support is much more efficient than walking the tree).

DAV already has support for recursive locks (including locks) on directories.
So we'd shouldn't need any new protocol changes for DAV. Presumably we can
come up with something efficient for svnserve.

Surprised we don't already have a feature request for directory locks already.
 So please do so.

Understand that filing an issue doesn't mean it's going to be immediately
worked on.
