Even if you get round that, there are other problems. Subversion
provides libraries to encourage alternative database clients. We
can't go blindly killing those, it may do more harm than good. You
might kill my fancy Subversion-aware editor. You might kill a process
that is accessing multiple repositories, in which case you may well be
the cause of other repositories hanging.
