What do you mean by interfere? Berkeley DB locking struggles? Node
revisions getting deltified by multiple processes at the same time?

The proposal is very simple. Today we have a routine which runs over
the items changed in a particular revision and deltifies the
predecessors of those items. 'svnadmin tunefs' would simply relocate
calls to that code from the commit process to an external program.
All the ways in which multiple instances of the deltification code
could knock heads with each other in the current scenario would still
be present in the new one -- but not additional ones, and as noted,
the individual user experience is greatly enhanced.
