5) Basically what I'd like to know is whether multiple instances of
the client running on the same machine maintain completely separate
data areas (i.e. - the separate instances don't interfere with each
other). If the code is re-entrant, then separate instances of the
commands will be complete separate from each other - the only thing
they share is the executable code.

6) Does Subversion other customers, example scripts or configurations
for using a Subversion client with Windows network drive?
