Maybe I'm missing some of the intrinsic details of the product you are
working on. Having one developer checking out the entire project and
by doing that locking everyone else out doesn't seem (to me)
appropriate _even_with_VSS_. No offense, but the fact that most of the
time everyone on the team minus one lucky guy has to work on unmanaged
files doesn't really sound very functional.
