I don't think so. Many people are running Subversion repositories on
Windows without any problems. If you need a step-by-step guide
on how to set up apache with subversion you can find one here:

AFAIK no. At least not much - I think it copies the subversion modules
for apache to the correct folder.

No. You only need python and/or perl for some pre/post commit hooks
like the mailer.py script. Or if you want to compile subversion you
need it to generate the project files for visual studio.
