If it's only reading it will probably work, but without the lockserver 
it can get caught out by activity happening on the server (especially 
commits, which change the file it might be reading at the time).

I wouldn't recommend using network shares - you lose performance overall 
  because you're transferring RCS files over the network (possibly 
multiple times).
