Except for the typo, +1 on your answer (from the template answer I
think the project name can be excluded), or my suggestion (115 char):

Our project is a full featured GUI Subversion client for MS-Windows
which integrates seamlessly into the Explorer.

We should win because we have a very big and active user base that
appreciates the user friendly way TSVN provides Subversion to them.

We'll never know ;-) But seriously, I doubt that having a video will
help this great tool: it sells itself I would think.
