I think they were talking about multiple people editing files in a
single working tree. Where there's a common working folder up on a
network share, rather then each developer having their own individual
working folder.

I was always told that each developer should have their own individual
working folder (either on their hard drives or in their home/user
directories). And that's the way I have our current source control
system setup. All of our developers are in different towns, so it's not
like we could use a shared working copy even if we wanted to.
