 Well, I guess that people in the Windows world would say that it's

 Subversion is targeted to run on many platforms and I see this different

It sure is fine for me, now that svn works on my machine ;-) If I've learned something during the years, then it's the fact that something like _the_ Windows way of doing stuff doesn't exist. Look at cvs for example, it lives perfectly w/o registry. It's just the question is it worth to to invest time in such a platform specific extension? how many will use it? you have to answer to yourself :-)

Thanks guys for your time and for supporting us!
