No, you're not wrong. But be grateful that they haven't written any more
crap in their docs. The first draft they showed be before the Beta test
began mentioned the cygwin client as the recommended one for Windows(!).
I then explained to them that there is an official (native) command line
client for windows, that the cygwin one isn't supported by the
Subversion team, and that mixing the cygwin client with other native
Windows clients could screw up the working copy (because cygwin treats
svn:eol-styl = native as LF, while native windows clients treat that as
CRLF. And some other incompatibilities of the cygwin client).
So I guess my explanation was too complicated for them so they now just
warn users about mixing *any* clients...

Am I really that bad in explaining things?
