No that is very reasonable.

1) compile time settings
2) machine-wide config file (hmm... do we have one? can't remember...)
3) EDITOR env variable
4) user's config file
5) SVN_EDITOR env variable
6) commmand line switch

Might be a good order. This all seems strangely familiar though...
haven't we had this discussion before?
