Yes, you have to implement locking if you want to have anything more
than a read-only volume in OS X. There is another OS X client called
Goliath which does not have this requirement. But it is not nearly as
cool as using the Finder for WebDAV operations.
I wrote a complete WebDAV server with locking (including the HTTP
server) in 4D. It was certainly not a small job, but it can be
accomplished by one person if you have good HTTT, XML, and databases
I would like to do one for Lisp some day, but no telling if I'll ever
get around to it.
