That would be the case if any of the other backends are as, er,
permissive as the SVN backend is.  Which I slightly doubt.

But, really, this is a bug in the SVN detection function.  It's
perfectly legitimate to, say, check in your ~/.emacs in SVN.  If you do
that now, then the Emacs vc functionality will break completely for all
the other files you have under your home directory.

So, like I said, I think the SVN checker should be made smarter, if
possible.  I don't use SVN, so I have no idea whether that's possible or
not.

If it's not possible, it should be moved to the end of the list.
