Can you figure out a good way for Subversion to deal with this, and to get
all of the various information down to Neon, and to handle the various
callbacks and whatnot? And have it use the registry on Windows?

Consider there are four pieces of data: host, port, user, pass.

Conceivably, APR should figure out the platform independent way to get a
user's proxy settings. I can easily believe that would include fetching them
from KDE. Of course, I'm not sure it is such a good idea to link against KDE
to grab that info... :-)

While your points are somewhat reasonable, I'd challenge you to find what
you think is a Good Solution. :-)
