There are several reasons for direct access:
- Used tools don't support SVN
- Need of a versioned file system
- Users have no and won't have skills using SVN
- Syncing working copy and repository manually is not an option,
  therefore we need something like auto-versioning

But the Mac OS X WebDAV client writes temporary files and destroys
all previous versions.

- One central working copy
- Users access working copy through mounted network volume
- If a file is _completely_ written to the working copy it will be
  synced with the repository automatically
