svn windows setup english windows only?

Am I right in believing that the windows setup for SVN will only work
on english windows systems?

I think this because of the hard coded path to diff.exe and diff3.exe.


It assumes 3 things that are not required to be true on a windows

1. C: does not have to be the %SYSTEMROOT%
2. PROGRA~1 is not guaranteed to be the 8.3 name for "Program files"
   on english systems.
3. French windows spells "Programs files" as "Fiche Logiciel" is more
   likely to be FICHEL~1 (but I guessing at the detail). And so on for
   all the other none english systems.

Of course if the diff.exe go away there is no work to be done here.
