I'm coming to this discussion a bit late, but why not make the last step in
every operation be to store the time(NULL) value in the .svn metadata
subdirectory somewhere, and then the first step be to read it back in and
do a 1-second delay if time(NULL) returns the same value that was
previously written?

One convenient place to store the value could be the mtime attribute of the
entries file itself, if we're not already unintentionally putting it there :-)
