:-) It's not that simple. A SVN checkout or update isn't just about
reading from the database.

Of course, there are lots of places in the code where we could (and IMHO
should) stop using transactions.There's even an issue about this (409),
but as I've said before elsewhere, this is anything but a trivial thing
to do. It involves big changes in the FS implementation, and we can't
afford to do those ATM.
