Doing this stuff professionally, I could probably come up with equivalences
for a number of Unices. What would be a reasonable path to getting write
privs on the wiki?

It mostly violates the principle of least surprise and is a cosmetic blemish.
I'd suspect that a lot of people use Subversion for their own or their
company development, and the default behaviour looks strange. It was
certainly surprising to me in any event.

A default of not having that turned on but an option to turn it on seems like
the most reasonable thing, given that the option is so closely tied to
FreeBSD development.

I will subscribe to that.
