I suppose I could just maintain my own builds of Subversion and
Tortoise, but I think my team would rather put up with long update times
and large hard drives, and *I'd* rather the problem be fixed properly,
with the clients and servers able to handle any window size.

It also sounds like there might be some benefit to researching the value
of choosing a window size based on file-size, or some other heuristic
(all funny quotes by Mark Jason Dominus aside).

However, the only way of making this work before the next
compatibility-breaking release (2.0?) would be to write some code to
allow the server to translate any delta to a delta with 100Kb windows,
which would obviously be pretty awkward and probably pretty inefficient.
  So unless I or anybody else decides to do that, then I guess there's
quite a bit of time for this to get done.
