I think the major thing is how the scms do locking.  I know that bzr
does its own locking in the pack-0.92 format and beyond that does not
rely on os level locking  (pack-0.92 is the default format in our
currently deployed bzr).  transifex should only be using subversion
working trees which should be fine (although the documentation recomends
to turn off subtree checking.)  cvs, I'd imagine, would be similar to
subversion.  git and hg are unknown to me.

I'll leave glezos to answer this.  I think the problem area would be if
a repository got into some sort of locked state that required us to
manually remove it.
