I did this in the past with several repositories.
And yes, it will work for you purpose (Windows-Project)

A minor issue exists if you are using unix-clients, they'll loose the ability to
read and set the file-attributes correct (at least the executable-flag).
As far as I know, you cannot do anything against it, the NTFS-filesystem does not
have executable-flags...
