Hmm. Doesn't provide any isolation from what other developers are doing.
Though it does isolate multiple different changes being worked on by the
same developer simultaneously.

Once a WC has had all local mods committed or reverted, and all extra and
ignored files erased, and been updated, it's exactly equivalent to a fresh
checkout, and there is no need to discard it and pull down all that data
from the server again.
