Seems like it should fit in an error handler somewhere. Let the write
fail in the uncommon case and fix things up only when needed. I'd
actually expect that there would be a lot of cases where your only svn
use is one run to grab some remote source and there would be no need to
clutter HOME directories with default gunk for that.
