State of Python Bindings for Windows

Hello,

I can't find any binaries for Python bindings for Windows. Previously
they were available from tigris.org site, but now there aren't any
updates. It will greatly reduce frustration for users of hgsubversion
and other Windows tools if up to date official bindings could be
available from PyPI.

Why Apache Foundation can't provide the binaries like it does for
Apache, for instance?

1.6 release notes contained information about new ctypes bindings
http://subversion.apache.org/docs/release-notes/1.6.html#ctypes-python-bindings
But where are they? How to use them or install them? Are they stable?
Do any projects use them?
I couldn't find any official information on subversion.apache.org

If there are no people interested in Subversion bindings development
in ASF team, I'd advise to move development to the old
http://code.google.com/p/csvn/ project and somehow sync with ASF tree
('somehow' here means - 'take a look at this use case') - this way
people at least will be able to send patches, monitor progress and
comment on arising issues, as well as explain what do they want.

Please, CC.
Thanks.
