At least I won't do that any more.
I will rather depend on the atomic lock,
and advertising repository lock on tomcay-dev list, requesting
everyone to be patient for limited amount of time :)

That's the problem.
It's easy to be a general after the battle, saying
you don't need to use the svn lock, etc...
But according to the SVN manual its a perfectly
