If you're auto-committing all the time, what's the difference? You'll
need to be connected all the time anyway. And it doesn't stop you from
performing a real checkout to work offline, and commit the changes
when you're back in the office or whatever.

And a royal pain in the a** when you decide that your last change
wasn't really what you wanted to do and you need to do a merge or copy
in the repository instead of a real simple revert to undo it (because
it was auto-committed).

Deploying to servers should never be automatic IMHO, it should be part
of a controlled release management process, continuous integration, or
even a hook script that triggers under certain conditions.
