The 'cons' of this proposal previously were based on the assumption
that making the value of SVN_ADM_DIR into a runtime option would have
involved using ~/.subversion/config, which would have been a huge
coding change. But now it seems like a tweak to the already existing
#define will accomplish the same task.

The only other 'con' listed was that ASP.NET working copies would be
non-portable. But frankly, that's the world we already live in.
There are already lots of shops out there using 'special' TortoiseSVN
builds which use '_svn' directories. So from where I stand, this
proposal seems like a net gain. Nothing gets any worse, but it means
Tortoise can stop making special releases.

IANTSP -- "I am not the subversion project". Do any other developers
have opinions about this?
