This might be me missing the point, and I'm really just trying to be
helpful here and make "prove" work for you because it's awesome, but
as far as just you running this for development purposes does any of
this SVN stuff matter? I.e. you can build Git itself not with
Strawberry, but just use Strawberry to get a working copy of "prove".
