The problems I see for something like that are more administrative than
techincal. Do you really want your clients to be able to see every
single little change as it happens? It sounds good at first, but IMO it
will cause more problems than it will fix. You're going to wind up with
a bunch of problem reports for things that you were working on at the
time they found the problem, wasting time all around.

AFAIK, the folder locking problem is a problem with IIS, and has nothing
to do with svn. I know it was a problem a while ago with IIS (v4?), but
it might be better in more recent versions of IIS.
