Re: [BUG] The client can't use a different directory than .svn

I agree that fixing the ASP.NET issue is important, I just think that
changing the '.svn' directory on windows is not the right solution. In
no particular order, my WC related use cases that will be affected by
such a change:

- Sharing WC between cygwin and native windows client, e.g. mixed use
of command line, subclipse and TortoiseSVN. I don't recall having
problems with 'eol-style:native' when setting 'Default Text File Type'
to 'DOS' in cygwin.
- Sharing working copies with large binary files, e.g. between
programmer (Linux) and artist (Windows)
- Scripts that involve the '.svn' directories are portable, e.g. build
- IDE configs are portable, e.g. excluding '.svn' folders

A solution that makes the admin directory configurable (even
defaulting to something else than '.svn') will be OK. Seems like a
prime candidate for 1.1 :-)

Hopefully this makes sense to someone besides myself.
