Agreed on the name-calling.
I don't know that I'd call it volunteering their developers' time - I
mean, the company makes money off Subversion and Subversion-related
services among other things, in addition to contributing significant
resources to the development. I think it's great that they offer up
the binary packages for free; their Windows installer makes it easier
for me to get Subversion accepted in my organization.
