subversion commits are ACID transactions so simultaneous commits will not cause any problems.

If the file your are commiting isn't up to do svn will return an error.

So, if you an I both submit a change to ^/foo.txt one of us will win the other will get an
error that foo.txt is out of date and you need to update and commit again. When you update
you will get either a clean merge or a conflict. If a conflict you resolve it and then you
can commit again.

So, you really don't need to be able to lock folders to avoid simultaneous commits.
