Not yet, but I would like to see read-only files optionally act that way
immediately rather than when saving is attempted.

[For CVS use, I can't resist (sorry) recommending using revision merging
rather than file locking.  The "C" stands for "concurrent", as in multiple
programmers working on the same files at the same time.  I've been doing
this for (could it be?) ten years, often working closely on the same files
as someone else, and have never run into serious conflicts.  And yes, 
I know, we should all be using Subversion instead... ;-]
