Here's the .reg file I have (thanks to sussman for walking over to the
Windows box and putting the files on a box I could access).

NOTE: There exists what I believe to be a bug in the config code (at
least the last time I checked) in that empty values are still
considered valid values -- therefore, the average no-proxy-having
Subversion user, if they add these keys and empty values to their
registry, will NOT be able to use Subversion.

I think Karl was planning on fixing this. Why fix it? you might ask.
Well, when you use the config files you have the luxury of commenting
out lines that shouldn't be counted as part of your config. That
allows someone to see the key/value pairs as examples even if they
don't use them. In our current registry using case, the only way to
"comment out" something is to remove the key altogether ... which
means that if you ever need to re-add that key, you have to dig around
through documentation to remember the key name and the format of the

Anyways, here's the .reg I used. Save the text to a .reg file,
completely remove any key lines you won't use (username/password,
e.g.), save, and double-click the .reg in an Explorer window. Oh, and

yourself responsible if your system goes to hell because of your
registry edits :-)
