Perl and Python are not available by default on a Windows machine. Now, I
know that they should be - but a lot of companies do not have very flexible
IT policies.
That means batch, Javascript, or VBScript in many (most?) Windows shops.
Call me crazy, but I want to be able to use the svn command line client on a
clean Windows install without adding anything but the executable.

On the server, it's a slightly different story. Server environments are
usually a bit easier to administer and keep locked down than client
environments. Adding Perl may still be a struggle but there are frankly too
many useful admin scripts written in Perl to keep it off forever.
