That's not good enough. Subversion is intended to run on Win32 as an
actual Win32 application, without cygwin. We have developers now who
develop Suversion on Win32 without having cygwin installed. The
extremely small limit on the length of a command on Win32 is one of
the reasons that this option is being written.
