Could you elaborate on this? My observation is based on looking at the
WebDAV conversation - when a transation is commited, a multi-response is
sent back listing in XML which file succeed and which didn't. But it goes
through either way, i.e. there is no option that says "abort if there is
conflict" in the API either.

Or am I underestimating SVN here? Can I actually rollback a transaction?
