I would think so. That's the first thing that I do when I install a new
Windows box. Show all, and show extensions.

To that end, whether .svn is hidden or not doesn't matter to me.

fwiw, the .svn directories are not hidden for me in Unix. I never use 'ls',
but always an alias which has the -a flag. And I don't use fancy GUIs that
would hide those files either.
