No, it doesn't include the MFC which is required.

I agree but it doesn't seem likely.
I have the Visual C++ 2003 Toolkit which is/was free and the Platform SDK
which is/was also free - I can't find the downloads any more. The vs2005
express components are apparently going to be $49 (which I still won't be
able to buy at work).
I also have gcc/cygwin (not sure why Stefan doesn't like cygwin but never
mind).
I can't build TSVN :-(

If you want to re-write TSVN to work without MFC you can have lots of fun
:-)
I'd prefer not to need visual studio but that is in no way a criticism or
objection to Stefan's technical decisions, just disappointment that I can't
join in (if my c++ ever got good enough).
