Not in JDK 1.5+ anymore. But I agree than fetching the env if that
user hasn't explicitly done it already is a bit heavy handed.

I hesitate between Stefan's position of requiring the user to do it
explicitly and adding it to the default excludes. Since
<defaultexcludes> allows both adds and removes, I guess adding it to
the hardwired defaults (unconditionally, no env fetching) would
benefit more people, and Kev and others can still do an explicit
<defaultexcludes remove="**/_svn/**>, although I guess a remove is
trickier, since requires knowing the exact pattern to remove.
