Thanks for pointing that out. I wasn't aware of these limitations.

Well, I suppose having a config knob for those who are aware of the
multi-client issues and are using multiple clients will still be an
improvement, regardless of whether this knob can be toggled from
the server-side. After all, every client heeds the settings in
~/.subversion/config, so it's a set-it-once-and-forget-about-it
solution to the problem.
