I've been using SVN on win32 for about 18 months. The security features are easy
to understand:

========
[/trunk]
john = rw
calvin = r
========

How difficult can that be?? Hopefully in time these permissions will be embedded
in the repos itself, and will be enforced through all connection types.

The requirement for Apache on a windows box is less ideal when you are running
IIS, but you'll grow to love Apache, and its easy configuration. It has a proper
configuration file instead of loads of junk in the registry!!

Transparent config files are something Microsoft is (sloooowwwly!) rediscovering
with .NET etc. Given a decade IIS will probably work much like Apache does
now... only it will take up 4 times the memory ;)
