Wow, that's ancient. We should kill that statement. Many people on
that list would take offense. :-) These days, you can run a
repository on win32 just fine, either with apache or svnserve. Many
people do.

The caveats are:

  1. berkeleydb doesn't work on win98, so use an NT variant

  2. don't host on XP unless you have service pack 1; the original XP
     had a tcp/ip bug that corrupted apache output.

Not sure, haven't tried.

No python bindings are required to host a repository on win32.
