Switch from VSS to SVN with Windows-based repository and server

Hi, all...

I've been watching the list for a week or so, and I've gotta say, I'm
impressed with the professionalism, courtesy, attention to detail, focus
on correctness, etc. I've seen from the members of the Subversion team.

I'm working with a few development teams. Some use Visual SourceSafe,
others use no source control at all <gasp>. With the way our source
code and our teams are organized, I find the "concurrent" editing model
of CVS and SVN very attractive. I don't have to recount to the SVN
members all the reasons I am leaning toward SVN vs. CVS :-)

I'm willing to deal with annoyances and occasional glitches of a product
at SVN's maturity level, as long as we don't lose code. (It's at least
better than not having source control!) But, working in a Windows-only
environment, I'm a bit concerned about something from the FAQ:

"In practice, it's difficult to get the Subversion repository running on
non-Unix platforms; if you succeed, we'd like to hear about it."

1) Is this still true?
2) Does the Win32 installer Jostein has been maintaining make this any
3) Is it setting up a Windows-based repository that requires the Python
bindings that were discussed at length a couple of days ago?

Thanks and kudos to the Subversion team and collab.net for all your
effort on this tool...
