Actually, I should explain that statement a bit. On the phone
yesterday, gstein, kfogel, sussman and I decided to remove the
'default fallbacks' for the $EDITOR (vi on Unix, notepad on Windows)
so if a user doesn't want to be shocked by that popping up in their
face, they can simply unset the environment variable. Instead of
getting a default editor, they will get an error message that says
that Subversion couldn't determine their external editor, and that
they should either set the environment variable or use -m or -F.
