sharing a checked-out project amongst users

Is it possible/safe to "share" a checked-out project amongst users?
For example if usera does:

  $ cd /usr/www/project
  $ svn co --username usera --password blah http://svnserver/project/trunk .

Can userb perform svn operations on the same /usr/www/project
directory (so long as they have permissions to write to the individual

I thought the fact that usera did the initial checkout might be stored
somewhere in the .svn directories, but this doesn't seem to be the
case, and so it seems like:

  * checked out projects are user-independent in the sense that
  * svn doesn't know (and doesn't need to know) which user did the
checkout in the first place

Is this correct?

Also, are svn operations locked, or will it be a problem if usera and
userb do a update at exactly the same time?
