I object. Far better to do it in libsvn_repos. Have some sort of
repository marker (perhaps simply the presence of a "magic" file) that
causes the get_repos() function to ignore its LOCKTYPE parameter and
always lock with an exclusive lock.

Have you read the Sleepycat docs?


They state "we strongly recommend that the database environment
directory reside in a local filesystem". By putting a Subversion
repository on a networked filesystem you are proposing to ignore that
recommendation. Please don't complain if it breaks.
