Subversion DLLs and TortoiseSVN

I wanted to help with the GUI development for TortoiseSVN, but getting
all of the core Subversion code and all of its dependencies set up was
just a bit too much for me to handle right now for just a GUI change. I
was about to suggest on the TortoiseSVN list that the TortoiseSVN shell
simply use the Subversion DLLs instead of having to compile the
libraries all over again into the TortoiseSVN application. But then, I
did a sanity check in my "...\Program Files\Subversion" directory and
realized that the Subversion installer doesn't actually include DLL


Here's where I think a "whole product" manager would step in and ask the


Would it be a Good Thing for the default Subversion install on Windows
to install and register DLLs rather than having the libraries statically
compiled into the .exe files? If not, why not? If so, then would it
make sense for TortoiseSVN to default to using those libraries? Or at
least be able to compile that way so folks like me could help with the
GUI without having to fight with getting the Subversion project and all
its dependencies set up?


(Cross-posted to both Subversion and TortoiseSVN dev lists, since the
discussion involves both pieces)
