Yes I see your point, and you are right the registry is able to handle
the linefeed. However it would be nice to be able to yes the standard
Windows tools to edit TSVN's registry settings.

My bad, yes you are right a comma is a valid path char, perhaps a ':',
 '|' or 'wide space' separator or ; separated like the path environment
 located here: HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Control\
Session Manager\Environment\path ?
