Thanks.

I even remember having read that a while ago, however it didn't
stick as 'technical reason' in my memory.

In fact, I am still not convinced that the example given there
can give much trouble (for us at least). First, I can make it a policy
to 'always update after commit'. Secondly, most of our postprocessing
(that's the part I am interested in right now) starts with a clean
checkout/export and never commits, so this particular 'client' is
always up-to-date.

So is the fear of client-out-of-dateness the only possible problem
or is there something else?
