Sure, but the examples in the book really *are* Unix-oriented. They
show more than just people running 'svn' commands: there are examples
with normal Unix commands as well (running system commands like 'ls',
'pwd', 'cat'), and paths are displayed with '/' instead of '\', there
are references to to places like "/home/username", and so on.

I suppose we can add a short disclaimer to the "Audience" section, and
point out that the svn subcommands look the same on any cmdline

By the way: the book has been relatively unchanged for 10 months, but
in the next 1 month we're trying to finish it up for good, now that
svn-1.0 is imminent. Right now *might* be a bad time to start a new
translation. :-) If you do, be aware that the book is a moving
target. (For example, I just rewrote the section right after the
"Audience" section you're commenting about.)
