WinFS is not necessary. From the MSDN library on CreateFile:
"In the ANSI version of this function, the name is limited to MAX_PATH
characters. To extend this limit to 32,767 wide characters, call the
Unicode version of the function and prepend "\\?\" to the path. (Works
on W2K and up)."
However, I suspect that this should be implemented in APR, and not
Subversion. (Perhaps it already is?)
