This EXACTLY What I do, BUT what you are describing in not a common
'working' directory.

The rule here is absolutely NOBODY EVER edits that directory tree
directly, the ONLY way it's
ever changed us thru and SVN update.

What they were talking about, applied to your situation, was to pretty
much just letting everyone have at your
live web directory and long as they commit regularly and skip all the
'complexity' of individual working copies.
