Re: need help setting up svn+ssh://

Personally I'd keep it as a wrapper script. There are no shell
compatibility issues because it would still be svnserve.exe on Win32.
AFAIK, this only affects *nix, so only *nix would get the wrapper script.

If it is a script, then it can also be easily modified for specific cases.
If it is built into the code, then it is much harder to change. What if
someone wanted a different umask or wanted to add some extra commands to the

A wrapper script is transparent to the end-user and mostly transparent to
the repos admin.
