Speaking as someone who has supported a gaggle of semi-clueless users (aka
students), TortoiseSVN is *way* better than WinCVS. If your GUI is just a
thin wrapper, then it should respect the defaults of our cmd-line interface.
But, TortoiseSVN, Subclipse, SCPlugin, etc. are more than that. And,
accordingly, they might alter their defaults to fit their users... -- justin
