I think this cannot be the proper way. If there are further items that
shared differently to the special text box then this structure wouldn't
work (Control A is used by project 1 and 2 and control B is used by
project 1 and 3).

This seems to me the only advisable approach.

I just wanted to make the use of subversion save and reliable somehow. I
assumend that someone could commit something when the build process is
running. This shouldn't cause an problem.
