FYI, adding post-commit.bat into the hooks directory of a repository
does work under Windows (XP, at least). I've had it running NetCat to
trigger a DamageControl build process[1] every time a commit succeeds.
Not that I'd seriously want to run a Subversion server under Windows...


[1] That probably sounds like garbage, but the gist is that the batch
file will be executed and behave roughly the same as a Unix equivalent.
