'The Three Meanings of "Lock"' += svn:sync-lock ?

Concerning the 'The Three Meanings of "Lock"' box:
Should that box mention svnsync locks as well?

(These are the svn_ra__get_operational_lock() locks that svnsync takes
using the svn:sync-lock revprop, exposed in the UI through the
--disable-locks/--steal-lock options to 'svnsync sync'.  Note 'svnrdump
load' also uses this kind of operational lock.)


(Asking because I just ran into an old Debian bug report where a user
looked in svnadmin for how to remove an svn:sync-lock; and `svnadmin
help | grep lock` wouldn't have helped him.)
