What about eclipsed files?

And never forget that Someone can always copy the file out of the view/workspace to make changes
to it because they're in a rush to leave for vacation.  Of course such a person, after coming
back from vacation, would *never* copy their week old modified file back in to the workspace/view
in order to check in their changes after the lock is released thus undoing the previous week's
work of commits. 

Point is, you can't completely idiot proof anything because there's always one idiot who's
smarter than you.
