  is this guaranteed to be true? a co-worker was using svn on the
local code base and (for reasons totally unknown to me) was mixing the
command line, rapidsvn, tortoisesvn and whatever weird version control
was being supplied through eclipse. and he got his working copy into
a totally confusing state. despite the fact that i couldn't supply
any *precise* reason not to do that, i suggested he limit himself to a
smaller set of svn clients.



p.s.  i think it was eclipse that was doing strange things with
versioning, but i don't know eclipse so that's a totally uneducated
