Actually, the hot-backup.py script is cross-platform. It uses Python's
subprocess module, which works fine on Windows (it's used in the
Subversion test suite). I just tested the script again on Windows 7, just
to be sure.

Enter the absolute paths to svnlook.exe and svnadmin.exe at the top
of the script, e.g.,

svnlook = r"C:\Program Files\Subversion\bin\svnlook.exe"

and you're all set.

Cheers,
Steve
