Well, to be fair, we've been saying (or implying) up till now that
patches for this were not welcome, because we'd decided that using the
Windows `hidden' attribute was not appropriate for the .svn area.

If we've changed that (I have no opinion) and patches are now welcome,
that's great, but I think Solo was simply trying to convince us that
such a patch ought to be welcome.

Now, why anyone would feel this needs to be solved before 1.0, that I
can't explain :-). But hey, multiplicity of motivations is one of the
joys of this project...
