Why impose arbitrary limits like that?  There's no technical reason for it.

Like it or not, some people *will* want to use exclusive edits, no 
matter how much we try to persuade them otherwise.  I'd rather they were 
able to use cvsnt (then start using proper concurrency when they realize 
the problems) than buy another package that only supports exclusive 
edits, then they're stuck... which really sucks if the only reason for 
wanting exclusive edits is because some upper level management type 
thinks they're cool.
