Re: serializing

When I'm committing and want to look at a diff, it's nice to be able to
'svn diff' in another terminal. I'd guess I'm not the only one that
likes to do this. I assuming Serializing would not allow this. Also,
some people might be doing this under-the-covers, for example, using a
script like Julian's (
http://svn.haxx.se/dev/archive-2004-10/0577.shtml ) and unlike him,
using status and/or diff used to generate a default log message within
the commit process as part of their editor invocation (rather than
prior to commit is as Julian mentions is his habit).

As an alternative: maybe an operation can reserve the right to repair
timestamps and other processes would then proceed without bothering if
that reservation were not available?
