Just curious if this suggestion is made in light of the concerns I
expressed in the other thread. Namely, that the location of the
config directory isn't determined until parsing the commandline args,
at which point it may be too late to introduce the additional args
obtained through the newly-discovered config file.

I'm not claiming that ~/.svnrc is the optimal solution, just pointing
out something would would need to be handled if we used
~/.subversion/foo.
