It will not be slow in that scenario.  I have my working copies on NFS to make
it easy to use a local editor but run some commands on the server where they
are mounted from.

Branko, is just warning you not to run concurrent operations from both the NFS
host and NFS clients as that is more likely to allow the assumptions about file
system atomicity to be violated that Subversion depends on.

In theory what you're saying is safe, but in practice I think it's a lot
harder.  It'd be very easy for a user to forget and run commands in two places.
