FSFS repo on a network share

Hi,

I've created an FSFS repository and would like to put it in a remote network
location that is regularly backed-up.

I've read that it's poor practice to directly access repos over a network
and that I should set up svnserve or Apache. The SVN
book<http://svnbook.red-bean.com/en/1.2/svn.reposadmin.create.html>mentions
that network shares are bad for BDB repos, but doesn't really
comment on its use for FSFS ones. Some people say there are potential
problems for network repos that are accessible by multiple users.

If the FSFS repo (on a network share) is restricted so only a single user
can access it, are there any risks to directly accessing the repo with an
SVN client? If I extend the permissions so that multiple users can read-only
access the repo, but only one user can write to it, are there any additional
risks? If so, is there any way to mitigate those risks without a local SVN
server at that location?

Thanks,
James
