No doubt that's better. I started working the way I did because I was
already syncing two complete copies of my home directory anyway, so I
figured I could keep the Subversion WCs synced in the same way. And
generally, it worked OK.

I was just attempting to emphasize that the *only* fragility I've ever seen
in Subversion is that I could damage my WCs when doing this, but that the
damage could have been fixed fairly easily. When someone else posted that
his organization has seen the same problem, it suggests that eliminating
this weakness of Subversion might substantially improve its robustness (in
the real world, where people abuse their WCs).
