Can they? I assumed that readers and readers could co-exist,
but not writers and readers. But I didn't check the code to
see if this is true. Thanks!

Anyway, checking if a path lies within a known WC root, and if it
does not walking downwards from the common root which is not a WC
to find all possible WC roots is still a better plan than trying
to find the root for each target by walking the target path upwards
towards its WC root.
