WC rewrite questions

A few quick questions on the upcoming WC rewrite.

First - is there a spec for the proposed wc rewrite? Perhaps my questions are already answered there.

Second - I have a problem with the way the wc adm_crawler is currently implemented in that it finishes the reporter.
In the case of the wc update routines, this effectively causes a new connection to the repository to be created for every path given to the client.
For a large number of input paths this overhead becomes the dominant factor in update times which may be orders of magnitude longer than if done over a single connection.
Will the wc rewrite address this issue and allow the update of multiple wc paths using a single RA connection?

Third - I am concerned about maintaining multi-user access with the new WC model. Is the current POR to lock the entire WC for write operations? If so, this could have some very negative consequences in our environment.

Thanks,
Eric
