To be quite honest, this survey isn't really a fair deal if it is going
be used to push out the in-repos and on-disk template feature.

* The feature isn't fully implemented yet
* It was never prominently announced, nor documented in the primary
   source of information people seem to be using: the book.

The only fair question I can see is: 'if we had this feature, would you
use it?'. Our projected userbase is going to be quite large and I
have a hunch that there is always a significant group of people
who would like this feature, while another significant group could
care less.

To be quite honest, I think you can only do the survey as is when svn
is rolled out in a large number of production environments...

Personally I would like the feature, so that I can tweak a template
once at the time I set up my first repository. When I later want
to set up another, I don't have to figure out again how I set up my
earlier repositories.

My $0.02,
