I think you are confusing when the user presses the STOP button on their browser
(which interrupts only the web client) with running out of RAM/disk/CTRL-C
(interrupts the server). Only something that can interrupt the server process
has the /potential/ for wedging the repository. Additionally, AFAIK that
paragraph dates from pre-1.0 days when it was possible to wedge the server by
interupting the commandline client (actually that is very pre-1.0).

In my opinion, I don't think you should spend a lot of time worrying about this
issue if you use exclusively HTTP access...
