Perhaps, perhaps not. For "svnadmin create", we'll probably have both:
an option for every little thing, and an option to read other options
from a config file. There's nothing wrong with being flexible.

Where do you read the config file(s) from, if there's no FS or
repository yet?

Well, if you had your patch on a branch, I could've looked there. .-)
I tried to come up with an interface that's independent of the FS
back-end. I think I succeeded in that. Once your FS abstraction layer is
in, we can think about a better solution.
