That's not true at all! If so, it would completely violate the entire
concurrent "copy, modify, merge" model used by both CVS and Subversion.

What happens is: User B tries to commit, and gets an error message
saying that the commit failed because his copy of file.pl is "out of
date". User B is then forced to update and merge changes before
retrying the commit.

What makes you think otherwise?
