I'm even tempted to remove the atomic update feature that runs "svn
up" before each change to a file.

This has never been used, indeed. It was planned to be used as a more
secure method in case a given file (mostly debian/po/*.po from
individual packages) is updated by a maintainer while I'm running

Practically, such cases nearly never happened and I just solved them
by hand when they happened.

The switch could only be useful if I decide to *always* use it in
automated runs which is currently not planned.
