wc-ng and a reference wc

I have heard some of some potential limitations in the ability to move
or copy the new working copy which concern me so I want to see if the
following use case is going to be supported. I know of several
organizations where the checkout operation is particularly painful. In
order to deal with that, they've established (many times with my
recommendation) a "reference" working copy which is kept up-to-date and
which individual users copy to create their own working copy. I fully
appreciated that they would not be able to copy only a sub-tree of a
working copy moving forward, but I've heard that maybe a working copy
cannot be moved and therefore copied to another machine. Is that the
case? If so, then this is a significant issue which will only further
exasperate the distributed development situation. Assuming it is the
case, I'm not sure why this would have to be a limitation (recognizing
I'm not a coder so I see things only from the surface) so enlighten me
if he does have to be a limitation.

 

Thanks,
