I am not familiar with this key. A CollabNet-supplied package did not set
it. Perhaps you were using the download from tigris.org with 1.4? The 1.5
binaries were recently posted, but I do not think they have posted a new
installer yet.

With 1.5.0, all we changed is the version number in the above key. The last
release would have had 1.4.6.

Why wouldn't svn.exe just be on PATH? Why would your script look it up in
the registry in the first place?
