I'm willing to assist in this area as much as possible. I do have a
Win32 box sitting next to me at the office whose job is, technically
speaking, to provide me a mechanism by which to keep Subversion on the
right track in The Win-world. My failure to do so thus far (well, at
least in some time now) is laziness on my part to fight with the build
situation. Until recently, Neon's Windows build was sooooooo broken,
and I tired of re-implementing custom Neon build stuffs every time we
xupgrade to a new version.

Now, I seem to recall a rumor that Subversion builds pretty much
out-of-the-box on Win32 these days. If this is true, then the Win32
platform will regain some of my attention.
