As you can see, as of r16244, the SVN command line client and svnversion
treat the environment variable SVN_ASP_DOT_NET_HACK specially on
Windows. If this variable is set, they call the new function
svn_wc_set_adm_dir() to make the WC use "_svn" as the admin directory name.

I strongly suggest that all Subversion clients that run on Windows
implement this behaviour. See subversion/clients/cmdline/main.c:848 for
an example of how this is done.
