Re: [TSVN] Running 64 bit prototype of TSVN 1.2.1 built with VS2005

My 64-bit porting experience tells me that many of the
changes you had to make are probably the right thing
to do whether or not we are supporting 64-bits...

I would think that, for example, we can probably get
the changes to work with VS2005 32 bit integrated
into the main repository. (Many of them are probably
C++ draft compliance issues if my experience is any

For those that SteveKing doesn't think he can maintain
due to the lack of a 64-bit platform to test and develop
on, perhaps he would consent to creating a 64 bit branch
in the TSVN repository.

I would also definitely submit your patches to the subversion
team as well...

I'm eager to see this beast!

Thanks for your work,
