I think that is considered a feature. In any case, it can be handled,
and in my case I handle it by policy.

I'm still wondering about the other question... are there any "read"
type operations -- such as checkout or update -- that cause repository
writes? I vaguely remember references to temporary transactions that
are created for certain user requests and then discarded upon
completion. If so, those would be writes to the repository data
structures, presumably. Is this real, or am I dreaming?
