Make it possible to enable "Auto Lock" without setting "needs-lock" for files

If I understand correctly subversion-lock on files that don't have the needs-lock property set, can still be committed by other users, thus not changing the behavior that much, if locked. Having every source file change "Auto Lock" would therefore inform the user that the file is worked on by someone, before him/her starting to work on it, without "upsetting" the "svn philosophy" too much...
We have some sensitive code that would benefit greatly from this. Also, when in a major rewrite of a lot of code, as we are now, merging sometimes is as much work as the actual coding (or more), if several people have done changes at the same time.
