Heh. Certainly an IIS plug-in would be useful. But it would take a fair
amount of work, and since most of the Subversion developers volunteer
their free time to work on this project, we use that time to do things
we're interested in; that's another part of the true freedom of open
source. :-) An IIS plugin doesn't seem to be near the top of anyone's
list here.

Which is not to say that it can't happen. You have at least two solutions:

    * Do the work yourself and submit a patch.
    * Persuade (i.e., pay...) someone to do the work for you.

(The second solution sounds as if it's incompatible with said true
freedom, but see, for example, http://www.gnu.org/philosophy/selling.html)

I know some of the SVN developers -- myself included -- have done this
kind of contract work before.
