Would it be worth tla making the checked out files read-only. That way
if you try to edit it you get a warning at least. You would need to do a
"tla unlock ..." to edit it (which of course would rename and copy the
file, maybe restore original permissions.)

Just trying to think of ways to make this safer... :O)
