Well, I guess that people in the Windows world would say that it's
inconsistent to use rc/ini files in addition to the registry :-)

Subversion is targeted to run on many platforms and I see this different
ways of holding configuration as a bonus :-) The installer just loves
the registery and the INI files are a very safe way of changing the
Subversion settings if the user don't like the default settings (from
the registery).

The registry is _the_ Windows way of doing this stuff and the INI files
are more Unix like. I agree that all this ways of configuration can be
confusing but I like it.

 After trying for some days to get svn running in windows, besides the
 workaround of putting diff.exe diff3.exe into a c:/cygwin/bin/
 directory (thanks to Roger Talkov, just before quitting this made me
 hope again!), I found another workaround: put the line
 diff3-has-program-arg = false
 into the [helpers] section of one of the
 %ALLUSERSPROFILE%\Application Data\Subversion\config or
 %USERPROFILE%\Application Data\Subversion\config files.

I will check this out on different machines and also see what happends if
the Subversion path comes before the Cygwin path etc.
