During the SVN Live conferences I asked people, privately, about their
opinion on automatic vs. manual upgrades. The overwhelming response was
that they wait for all the clients to catch up before upgrading. Given
these results, my opinion leans towards leaving auto-upgrades on, but
spending more effort on documenting that there's no way back.

Regarding read-only access to old-format WCs: I studied the
implementation and came to the conclusion that it's not worth the
effort. There's no clear connection between read-only operations and
actually not modifying the wc.db, so unless someone wants to refactor
the WC code (and all the bits that rely on it) again, this is not going
to happen.

Sounds like a bug in either the test code, or the bits of wc-ng that try
to determine the wc root...
