I copied the "SVN_ prefix makes it public" statement from
Daniel's original knobs file.

IMHO, however, the intention of that file is to serve as a
central point of reference to svn devs. I suggest that we
simply remove said statement and replace it with a "this
is SVN-dev-private information" disclaimer.

An enthusiastic user may still take the information in that
file to find out "what if" but I consider it a tool - not a commitment.
