I would... that's why I did :)

I meant the TCVS policy settings and their influence on the -kx option.
To some people it seems counterintuitive that TCVS uses the -kx option
on add (forcing "exclusive" edits of the file) even when the TCVS policy
is set to non-exclusive edits.

And this is not something I just made up... I actually /read/ such a
discussion with disagreements in it :)
