Correction: The ones we actually use are Auto Hot-Key scripts. I don't think we ever got the Python version going reliably.

The scripts aren't big: Neither are the compiled executables.

For example, the active text of the Auto Hot-Key script to copy the head URL is:

; Script Function:
; Output the latest rev url of the file in the clipboard
; Requires the user to select the relevant file/folder, then press the hotkey combination

; copy the filename to the clipboard
clipboard = ; Empty the clipboard

; ensure a long path name is used, as SubWCRev.exe does not support short path names
Loop, %1%, 1
        vLongPathName = %A_LoopFileLongPath%

; get svn info from the copied file into the clipboard
vSrcFile = %A_Temp%\svnUrlSrcFile.txt
IfExist, %vSrcFile%
        FileDelete, %vSrcFile%
), %vSrcFile%
vDestFile = %A_Temp%\svnUrlDestFile.txt
FileDelete, %vDestFile%
command = SubWCRev.exe "%vLongPathName%" %vSrcFile% %vDestFile% -f
RunWait, %command%,, Hide

IfNotExist, %vDestFile%
        vMessage = Error: The selected file/folder is not a Subversion working copy!
        MsgBox,, Latest Version Subversion URL, %vMessage%
        FileReadLine, vUrl, %vDestFile%, 1
        FileReadLine, vRev, %vDestFile%, 2
        If vUrl =
                vMessage = Error: The selected file/folder is not a Subversion working copy!
                MsgBox,, Latest Version Subversion URL, %vMessage%
                ;modify the url for wsvn
                StringReplace, vGeneralUrl, vUrl, Subversion, wsvn
                vSpecificUrl := vGeneralUrl . "?rev=" . vRev
                ;replace spaces with %20 for pasting into mantis and emails
                vUrl := RegExReplace(vUrl, " ","%20")
                ;output url
                clipboard := vUrl

For the specific version, the output to the clipboard uses vSpecificUrl
