almost.
If you version a file and commit it, then on another workstation you run
update, the now versioned file does not overwrite the existing one but
gets 'merged' with it. The file that already exists will still be there
with the same content as before, but it's marked as 'modified'.
You can then revert those local changes and you have the file as it is
in the repository.
