It's not that you can't use it, just that it can't protect you from
the things that can happen through direct file system access. Like
accidentally deleting the whole repo or changing ownership or
permissions. If those things are important, then you (or if multiple
users are involved, someone in your organization) should set up a
server - it isn't difficult.
