Un-wrap some lines.

  == Design: Server-Dictated Configuration ==
  
+ Many software development shops of non-trivial size desire to have an enforce a uniform
configuration environment among the various clients which commit to their repositories.  Although
these shops may have the ability to control the environment on the client machines (dictating
software versions, etc), relying upon the client for setting various configuration parameters
can be time-consuming and problematic.

+ Subversion already provides the means of enforcing much (but not all) of this configuration
through the hook script mechanism.  What our users desire is some way of having the server
dictate a default or recommended configuration to clients.  The parameters of interest typically
come from the standard client-side config: things like global-excludes or auto-props.  Allowing
the administrator to store a default config on the server, which then gets pushed to the clients,
would save both time and frustration.
