We require Windows 2000 or later since Subversion 1.6.0 . I also
don't see why we should support Windows 2000: extended support by
Microsoft ended on July 13, 2010 (almost 5 years ago) 
And de-facto current Subversion trunk doesn't support Windows 2000.
Serf also doesn't support Windows 2000 (due usage of SSPI)
