Err, you *are* aware that pserver launches a different process for each
user who's connected, and uses pretty much only file- and
directory-level locks (as opposed to full-repository locks), such that
different users can be changing different files in the same pserver
repository at once, right?

pserver does *NOT* buy repository-level atomicity.
