Interesting. I've never actually seen a large (production) repository on
Windows, although I can testify from my own stress tests that it should
be quite as stable as a Unix version (and in fact less prone to the file
permossion problems that plague Unix installations).

A Notes integration would be very interesting for me, too. Not that I'd
expect you to share your solution with the SVN community, but one can
always ask... :-)

I couldn't say. Other people have asked for Windows DLLs, too, but at
the moment it looks like they'll wait until I find the time. They're
definitely on my list, but I'm not even sure if we can add DLLs in the
1.0.x series, due to interface compatibility issues.

As soon as the DLLs are building, all the bits necessary to do so will
be in the public SVN repository.
