What? I thought the only discussion here was whether or not
Subversion presumed that 'vi' was the default Unix editor and
'notepad' was the default Windows editor. In the currently code,
Subversion *will* pop up an editor by default if $SVN_EDITOR, $VISUAL,
or $EDITOR is set. If they aren't set, the user will be informed that
Subversion looks in those places to find an editor. If the user
doesn't like getting that message, he/she should set $SVN_EDITOR,
which shouldn't interfere with other programs' use -- or non-use,
since it isn't set -- of $EDITOR.
