No. On Windows, per-user configuration will be either in a file in the
user's AppData, or in the user's registry. I suspect that, if you build
on Cygwin, the Unix mechanisms will kick in anyway and you'll get things
in ~/.subversion and /etc/subversion, but we will not change the
behaviour of the Windows client to cater to Cygwin users.

BTW; I use Cygwin myself. But if I wanted a completely unix-like
environment, I'd be running Linux or something (and thereby avoiding 99%
of the pain of getting Subversion working on Windows in the first place).
