Yes, I had read that. I found it to be (maybe intentionally) very
inconclusive, so I was looking for some real-world experience. It also
seems a lot gets written about users on shared file system, local users
access the same repository, etc, and none of those are issues for me
(due to exclusive access via svn://). It also mentions that it's
"relative immaturity compared to Berkeley DB", but now that it is the
default in 1.2, I'm assuming that is no longer true and wondering what
the updated info is (if any).
