Yes, I have a hard time visualizing how any tool can help with concurrent
changes if one side doesn't stop while the merges happen both ways and the
results get back. Some may be better at permitting the teams to keep working
while the code diverges, but that's not necessarily a good thing. Particularly
if other forms of communication are equally hampered.
