It's not that uncommon for users to share a working copy. For example,
a working copy may represent a semi-live 'staging' copy of a website.
N users may commit to the repository, then any of the N users might go
and run 'svn up' on the staging copy.

(A while back, when svn had bugs related to shared working copies, we
got complaints all the time.)
