This isn't necessarily a bad thing ... under certain circumstances you
might want to let multiple developers checkout the same source at the
same time.

As long as the code is checked out to different locations, this is known
as concurrent development (at least that's what we call it in

Properly managed, this can provide good productivity gains.

The key is to make sure that concurrent development is closely managed
and that changes made by one developer are merged in with changes made
by other developers.
