It should still work, but the option to enable this is gone from the
settings dialog. Since the hack is not needed anymore (or do you know
anyone still using VS2002?), I removed the setting to clean up the dialog.

But you can still set the environment variable manually: just set the
variable SVN_ASP_DOT_NET_HACK to any value - the hack is activated as
soon as the variable exists (you may need to restart the computer
though, since the variable is loaded on startup and the shell
extension/desktop needs to restart to re-read the variable).
