If the machine you place the file:// is the same where you can
accidentallly do a rm -rf, accessing the file:// through a server won't
help you with that problem.

Additionally, to those security-concious people, installing servers on
your workstation just to access local repositories isn't exactly on the
top of best practices. Don't you agree?

And I hate to repeat myself, but I'll repeat for the third time this
question: if file:// is not intended to be used, then what are the
available options for those who need a version control system and can't
set up a server?
