Well, that theory assumes that svn uses these associations to determine
which file is executable. It does not. Windows hooks must be .exe, .cmd
or .bat files.

(And it turns out The Book gets it wrong when it mentions .com files.)

The file association thingy is an evil plot designed to compromise the
security of your Windows box. That's why Subversion doesn't (and won't)
use either the file assoc info or the %PATHEXT% list.
