Detailed Description

A lock object, for client & server to share.

A lock represents the exclusive right to add, delete, or modify a path. A lock is created in a repository, wholly controlled by the repository. A "lock-token" is the lock's UUID, and can be used to learn more about a lock's fields, and or/make use of the lock. Because a lock is immutable, a client is free to not only cache the lock-token, but the lock's fields too, for convenience.

Note that the 'is_dav_comment' field is wholly ignored by every library except for mod_dav_svn. The field isn't even marshalled over the network to the client. Assuming lock structures are created with apr_pcalloc(), a default value of 0 is universally safe.

in the current implementation, only files are lockable.
