I agree with that part, not least because there's no concept of
~/.subversion or ~/.svnrc on Windows; we put the subversion config dir
in the user's (or system) profile dir, which is not equivalent to $HOME.
It's much easier for everyone to deal with one set of config file
locations, even on Unix-derived systems.
