I am beginning to wonder if it is worth putting the effort into VC
express. If SVN does get patched it will not be out until 1.4 which is
likely to be 6 months away. According to Microsoft, VC Express is only
available for free download for 1 year. After that I guess it will
either be non-downloadable, or non-free. Copies already downloaded will
still be usable.

As it will only work for SubWCRev and TBlame anyway, maybe we should
stick with VS.NET2005 only. The number of additional contributions we
would get towards SubWCRev and TBlame will likely be negligible anyway.
