[TSVN] VS.NET, _svn and .svn folders

Hi,

as of revision 4517, TortoiseSVN can now change the admin dir folder
without the need to install the 'special' TSVN version. This was
possible because Subversion 1.3 has this implemented too in its library,
so TSVN as a client can implement this too.

To enable this, you must set the environment variable
SVN_ASP_DOT_NET_HACK. It doesn't matter what value that variable has -
TSVN and Subversion only check for the existence of this variable.

After you've set this variable, you must reboot (or kill all explorer
tasks). That's because env variables are passed to every program on
startup - and since TSVN is always started from the shell (which is
started on bootup) changes in env variables won't get passed on until
you actually restart the shell.

So please, please: grab the next nightly build and give it some testing!
You're not only helping TSVN but also Subversion with the tests, because
I really doubt that many Subversion devs actually use that env variable
and so they won't notice if there are some bugs with that new feature.

Stefan

P.S. if nobody's testing this, don't come complain later after we
release 1.3.
