I've considered that. I have also been hoping these scripts would
find there way into Subversion. I am using MSVC 6.0 currently and I
assume that does not work with your scripts.

A general concern I have about us moving to newer version of Visual
Studio is the things that we maybe do not know about. Such as what it
the deal with these manifest files and when do you need them? I see
the Apache build process doing stuff with them, but not ours. Will
this make our builds non-distributable to other systems?

I think the ideal would be a new build system that focused on the free
compilers and tools from Microsoft so that there were not any real
barriers to a developer building SVN on Windows.
