That *might* work if you find some central place in the C projects
to do that. However, one can easily imagine situations where they
want to distinguish between WIN32 and WIN64. Anyway, this
has to be discussed by the respective project owners (no such code
in TSVN).

Nope. The special problem is sizeof (size_t) > sizeof (long). Thus,
pointer casts between them are EVIL.

That would be nice. Since TSVN is bound to Win32 anyway, there is
no compelling reason to stick with the std C functions.

Of course. It had already been begun in the .py scripts. It just isn't
finished, yet.

Nope. That's a remnant of my experiments. As a result, the only
way to get that fixed to switch to restring instead of TCHAR*.
It will be cleaner code anyway.

If project dependencies allow, independent projects within a solution
will be build simultaneously. On my 2x248 this is fun to watch.

Hm. Send and receive order seem to get mixed up. Some posts
take a very long time (8 hours?) to get archived. I even see delivery
failures from time to time.

Perhaps, in a more realistic scenario there will be only a TSVN64.dll
for shell integration, leaving everything else 32 bit. So, there won't
be a need to have completely separated installation etc.

I'm sorry that I haven't stated that more explicit: The large ZIP file
was never meant to go to /trunk. Instead, it should linger in some
"dark" corner of the repository where people may download and
improve it.

The "prime-time ready" patches have just been extracted. The ones
belonging to TSVN have been posted a few minutes ago (2 bounced
back - I will check them).

So let's see what those patches do to TSVN ;)

Regards,
Stefan.
