I think we should add it and document it in big bold letters!  If it  
truly is the only way that projects can use svn effectively,  
then I suppose we need to support it, but we should warn that if you  
have a 'normal' directory that happens to be called _svn you could  
experience strange behaviour

Regardless of what we do, we need to decide so that it can go into  
the release, therefore:

Default excludes to include the ASP.Net hack _svn directory for the  
release of Ant 1.7.0 + svn antlib, and documentation to be updated to  
reflect this change
