Yes, but few things in this world can be as satisfactory as imposing your
view on Windows users, especially when you have a 5% market share :)

All that bullshit about breaking compatibility and not being able to
share working spaces...

They had two years to stabilize the API before 1.0 and after many
reports about this problem and many discussions it still didn't cross
their mind that maybe some support should be added in case the admin
folder will be changed.

Let's face it, 75%+ of those who are against this change opose it
because of their personal feelings about M$ and Windows.

One week on this list and it's clear to me that they don't want to
fully support Windows and Visual Studio users.

Too bad that Subversion is such a great product and there isn't
something better.
