If we remove this support, I would recommend also removing the VS 2002 (aka .Net) and 2003 support. Those versions are mostly unused these days while 6.0 still has a group of supporters that doesn't want to upgrade to anything newer.

If our NMake support still works (I never used it), I would recommend that users of these old versions of Visual Studio use that, if they want to build subversion using those tools.
