SCPlugin attempts to be like TortoiseSVN, but I have to admit that
although I've installed it on my Mac, I still use the command line
client for everything since I'm now used to it and know how it works.
But you may want to check out SCPlugin and see if it helps your Mac
users.

Right. Having multiple developers access a single working copy is not
particularly useful and prone to conflicts and problems. It's better
that each developer have at least one working copy to herself. For
many of our projects I even have two or three working copies for
working on different tasks simultaneously.
