Well, can you *guarantee* that this is the registry key on *all*
windows versions TSVN runs on? Including all servicepacks and language
variations?

And since both getenv() and reading a registry value is an expensive
operation, both Subversion and TSVN only check this on program startup
- which in case of the shell extension is when the desktop is loaded
(i.e. after a reboot or logout).
