The svnadmin command currently allows you to list and remove locks. It would be useful if you could also
create locks. Suggested syntax would be something like:
svnadmin lock REPOS PATH USERNAME COMMENT-FILE TOKEN
Where COMMENT-FILE is handled similar to svnadmin setrevprop
TOKEN would be optional. If not provided a lock token would be generated.
The reason I would like this subcommand is that it would make it possible to build a system for synchronizing
locks between a master and slave. A post-lock hook on master could send this info to slaves and they could use
it to create the lock on the slaves (with the same lock token). It seems like it would be possible for someone to
use this command to store lock information along with a dumpfile and recreate them after restoring repository
from a dump. That is not my goal, but I think it is another possible usage.
