This also speeds up file access time on brain-dead file systems (like those
found on Windows). Nice change!

Yup, you got it.

It used to explicitly look for the string literal "END" in the file. IIRC,
it raised an exception if that wasn't found.

You might want to shoot a mail over to the dev@subversion list; some of the
developers have Windows environments.

Kinda puzzling that 0.9.36 is taken off of the 1.0.x branch, but whatever. :)
Just so long as the exact source code can be reproduced without too much
