It would need to be not just a SAN but a SAN with a cluster filesystem, based on previous conversations (see below).

Thinking out loud: yes, they should - since it's no difference for a repository if multiple clients commiting over same server or few distributed nodes. Or is it different when the same process handles all requests?
