Not even that much is done. I meant that the DAV RFC includes details on how
locks on collections (DAV's name for directories) should work. DAV handles the
inheritance by supporting a depth parameter for the lock.

Basic model for how looking should work that specifies some behavior related to
depth-infinity locks:
http://webdav.org/specs/rfc4918.html#lock-model

Specific section on directory locks.
http://webdav.org/specs/rfc4918.html#write.locks.and.collections

One problem that may arise here is we may not like how DAV implemented
directory locks. If not then we have the issue of our LOCK method support not
really being compatible with DAV.
