Then good luck with that; seems to me like a recipe for wrecking your
repo in case two unfortunate souls do svn commit at the same time. But
that's out of scope here.

Now I know that cloning groups is supposed to work (it requires that all
the primitives within the group are themselves cloneable, but you've got
that covered), but I've never used it myself and can't say for sure that
it's working as advertised. But it's supposed to, and if it is not,
please let Andrew know.
