I came around long after these decisions were made, so I do not know. I am
pretty sure from the TSVN list though that they have problems if two
processes try to access the WC at the same time. So it might not be a bad
thing that we do not allow concurrent access to the WC. I think I recall
discussions about this on the svn-dev list too.
