I thought that Subversion compiles on 64-bit systems just fine? If not,
you should report that to them!

What changes were needed for VS2005? I can't imagine that there are so
many incompatibilities between VS2003 and VS2005?

Just send the patches. I can't of course commit the patches to the other
libs, but for TSVN I will include them as long as I still can compile it
with VS2003.

No problem. Just send it here for reviewing.

Would you volunteer to provide a 64-bit installer for every release too?
Since I can't do it myself, we have to find someone who can do it.
