I'm trying to understand the use-case here, because it seems new and
strange to me.

You guys are telling me that:

* you have a bunch of non-technical users

* they all need private working copies of the data

* they all need commit privileges

* they accidentally change lots of files, and then don't know which
ones to commit

How do files get accidentally changed?
