Local repository access / AFS?

Hi there!

I've been passively following the project for a while and there is a few
things about local repositiory access I would like to ask about.

Subversion is said to be a replacement for CVS, which is great and much
needed. We currently use CVS in local repository mode, but with the
files on AFS (see openafs.org). This works great, ordo the usual problems
with CVS.

If I am not mistaken, subversion stores the entire repository in a
Berkely DB which has some support for locking and concurrent access.
Would it be safe to assume that multiple users could access a
repository database at the same time on a distributed filesystem?

Using AFS for revision control allows us to use the already deployed
remote file access and security infrastructure instead of introducing
and maintaining a new one (pserver/webdav).

If it is not currently possible to do, what parts of the code would
require changes?

Please respond off-list as I am not a subscriber.
