This looks more like "I do believe the idea by David is a useful
addition and here is how I did it to the best of my ability---let's
make sure we polish it for eventual inclusion" than a mere "it may
look like so---do whatever you want with it" patch.

To me "git worktree add --lock" somehow sounds less correct than
"git worktree add --locked", but I'd appreciate if natives can
correct me.
