SVN+SSH access not advisable

I read in the SVN book that it is in principle not advisable to allow
multiple users to access a repo simultaneously via SVN+SSH.

My question: How critical is this in reality. We worked for a couple of
years in such a mode and never met any problem.

Perhaps this is only troublesome if you try to check in changes with lots
of users and heavy load for the machine running all the single svn
instances on ssh login shells?

We never had corruption due to SVN+SSH (say 3-4 computers committing to
the repos, only 2 had a chance to commit within the same second), so
what is the big drawback?

Am I right if I assume that we got spared trouble just because of the low
possibility of access to the repo at the exact same time?
