SVN Repository on a USB drive, FAT filesystem?

Do you think it is ok to put a repository on a removable disk,
such as a USB drive, with a FAT filesystem?

The docs warn against network mounts:

      Do not create your repository on a network share-it
      cannot exist on a remote filesystem such as NFS, AFS, or
      Windows SMB. Berkeley DB requires that the underlying
      filesystem implement strict POSIX locking semantics, and
      more importantly, the ability to map files directly into
      process memory. Almost no network filesystems provide
      these features.
    
... but I don't know enough about USB and filesystems to know
if this applies.

Thanks.
