file: Access vs. Database stability

From running a subversion server for quite a while (about over a year
now) I get the feeling that for stability of the main server we
absolutely have to ban all access via file urls and other non-http
access methods. this in particular appears to affect viewcvs and similar
which appears to have wedged our repository several times the last few
days alone.

This appears to contradict the recommendation of the developers to use
the direct svn API for utilities like viewcvs. I am getting the feeling
that this recommendation is a reciepe for disaster, as you never get a
stable repository as long as you allow develpment of utilities using the
direct access methods. What do the others think about this conflict?
