i was just trying show that i considered sending to users before i sent
here, so i wouldn't get flamed. ;)

the reason i asked here is because i want more of an 'authoritative'
answer than an 'anecdotal' one. anecdotally (is that a word?), i already
know this approach works and i expect i'd get the same answer in the
user list, since there have been wiki's/web pages describing this process.

however, the 'dev' list (i assume) would have more knowledge of issues
that affect actual operation. for example, i remember there was a bug in
1.2 where if the 'db/format' file was outdated or missing, *all*
operations would attempt to write to the repository and thereby break
things if the repository were read-only. i'm not sure that most users
are aware of this kind of technical stuff, so i ask here.

to use a (bad) metaphor, every crow i've ever seen is black. while i
could probably safely assume that *all* crows are black, i'd feel a lot
better logically or scientifically proving it, if something important
(like my code) depended on it.

so i probably should have worded my question to say, "is anyone aware of
any issues that would prevent things from working this way?"
