It tells me that it is pretty darned close to devenv.

Success! Just by replacing 'devenv.com' with 'vcexpress.exe' I can get
the Subversion target to build in nant. I will have a go at updating the
build file for that. I think we can use Toolpaths.tmpl to set a variable
which changes the default from devenv to vcexpress.

The subversion reverts don't work though.

[exec] External Program Failed: vcexpress.exe (return code was 1)
... this error is expected, according to the default.build ...
[exec] Skipped 'apr'
[exec] Skipped 'apr-iconv'
[exec] Skipped 'apr-util'
[exec] Skipped 'neon'

BUILD SUCCEEDED - 2 non-fatal error(s), 7 warning(s)

There is no separate build file for SubWCRev.exe. I built it by loading
the .vcproj file into VCExpress IDE and building just one item, but it
would be good if there were a separate target in TortoiseSVN.build. Is
it possible to pick just one item for devenv or vcexpress to build?

As DJ Heap said, VCExpress runs in the background with no console
window, so you have no idea what is going on. Seems to work though.
