Assuming that "+1" is the same as "Me Too" but with less flaming, then
I'm in agreement too, much as I love the phrase "Fully Configurable
Source Code". If it can be an option, it might as well be one.

Silly question, but can a repository provide default settings for these
things? It seems sensible, to me, that the repository administrator
should be able to at least "hint" to the users that they do, or don't,
want .o files etc.

These things don't 'feel' like per-user or per-workdir options to me,
but per-repository most of the time. I see plenty of things saying
"Please use -xyz CVS options" about, for instance, or "Please send diffs
in Unified Frog Format".

Please feel free to flame me senseless for not finding this in the
archives/user docs/source/whatever - I did have a look, promise. Feel
free also to flame me for coming up with a stupid idea, or just flame me
for being long winded. :-)

As an aside, now building subversion from svn "every now and then" on
RedHat Linux 7.3 (into an RPM with make check) and using it for my own
code. It's truly excellent, and a job well done. I can only think on one
thing it doesn't do - "symlinking" in the repository, which MS-VSS does
- but I think I might be able to work around that with Apache rewrite
rules. Oh, and I can't directly *save* files to my repository when
mounted as a "Web Folder" on Windows, but that's probably "Quite Right
Too". When I get a feel for what might be a bug and what is probably my
own stupidity, I'll start reporting and/or trying to fix them.
