Because I want to decide what I share with project's other members and what
I do not share.

Anyway this is running out of the subject.

Maybe in the future I will decide to make multiple working copies and/or
experimental branches in the repository and maybe I will not do that.

But the fact that SubWCRev cannot run outside working copies without
returning an error code breaking scripts from which it is called is not
important enough for being the reason of my decision.
