Okay, thanks! Let me spell out my understanding so far, just to make

Under Windows (just Win 2000, or all Win32?), we will continue to
fetch configuration data from the Registry first. After any Registry
data is read, we'll merge in data from config files. We'll find the
config files in a config directory, which we'll locate like this:

   char *appdata_dir = getenv ("APPDATA");

   if (appdata_dir)
        svn_config_dir = apr_psprintf
           (pool, "%s\\Subversion\\.configuration", appdata_dir);

        if (svn_config_dir does not exist)
            svn_config_dir = apr_psprintf
               (pool, "%s\\Subversion", appdata_dir);
   else /* no APPDATA dir, so look in current working directory */
        svn_config_dir = ".\\some-default-dir";

Within that dir, the files will have the same names as they do in
~/.subversion/ under Unix -- that is, `proxies' etc.

Should some-default-dir be "Configuration" or ".configuration", or
something else entirely?
