[RFC] Dropping support for Windows '9X and NT 4.0 in Subversion 1.6?

Just a quick question to you all. Do you use a current subversion release
(1.4 or 1.5) on Windows '9X or NT 4.0?

We are thinking about dropping support for these Windows versions starting
with Subversion 1.6, by formalizing Windows 2000 or later as requirement for
the Windows releases.

(You can always use an older Subversion client to connect to a new server on
these windows versions)

Microsoft dropped the support for these windows versions a few years ago and
the currently released binaries from Collabnet, SlikSVN and probably also
Tigris are only targeted towards Windows 2000 and later.

Removing the compatibility workarounds, would clean up the authentication
code considerable and might even enhance the speed a little bit.

What do you think?
