May suggest to add this to both the SVN and TSVN FAQs? As
any new user is faced with this issue within few weeks and most

Freedom quote:

     It's time we asked ourselves if we still know the freedoms
     intended for us by the Founding Fathers.
     James Madison said, 'We base all our experiments
     on the capacity of mankind for self-government.'
     This idea that government was beholden to the people,
     that it had no other source of power,
     is still the newest, most unique idea
     in all the long history of man's relation to man.
