If you have to ask, then follow the first rule and assume that it won't
work!

Here are the FAQs:
http://tortoisesvn.net/faq.html#repoonshare
http://tortoisesvn.net/faq.html#wconshare

the last FAQ also links to this:
https://www.sqlite.org/faq.html#q5

which applies as well.

So, basically: don't do it. Even if it might work. No, even if you had prof
that it will work: do not do it!
