 Yes, but not how you meant. It is an epidemic of applications, not
 Subversion users.

 I agree. As a user, I find it very annoying that I have to visually
 search through over 60 application configuration directories in my home
 directory to find *my* 15 directories.

 Perhaps Subversion can start a new trend of putting application
 configuration files and directories in one appropriately named
 directory. For example,
 
   /
   +- home
   | +- moloney
   | | +- .app-configs
   | | | +- .bash
   | | | +- .emacs
   | | | +- .gconf
   | | | +- .gimp
   | | | +- .gnome
   | | | +- .ssh
   | | | +- .subversion
   | | | +- .xmms
   | | +- docs
   | | +- misc
   | | +- samba
   | | +- sandbox
 
 Instead of cluttering up the my home directory, applications can clutter
 up one specific directory and leave the rest alone unless specifically
 told to by me (Save file, svn co, etc.)

The canonical name for such a directory would be .etc/ I believe...
