How would subversion know what revision you are basing your edit on
when you don't have a working copy? Normally, when you commit a
change, the client says to the server: Hey, I have revision 14 of this
file. Take that file and do these modifications. If there is a newer
revision in the repository, then the server knows to throw a conflict
error.
