I do not know who maintains the Win32 binaries and installer, but perhaps
they could be persuaded to publish two versions of each release? One
compiled with the defaults, and one where it was overridden to a name

would have trouble compiling SVN and if a somewhat "official" alternate
build were available it would satisfy a lot of users and help avoid these
Also, I think another concern is that while the FAQ tells you how to do
this, it also discourages you from doing so without really saying why. For
example, would tools like TortoiseSVN have problems with it?
Finally, is there any possibility that the eventual SVN SCC provider,
whichever one gets there first, can resolve this problem within the
