I agree with you. kdesvn-build works a charm on linux, why not make  
something similar on win32 based upon it?

This evening I've whatched a bit of that 5000 line of perl code (so far  
:D) . I'm not a guru, but i think that a windows port is not so hard with  
some hack.
We are loosing some featyres, first of all symlink (used f.e. in logging)
My work stopped at porting "pipe'nd fork", but i'm sure someone knows how  
to make the equivalent code.
So, if there is anyone working in perl, with a lot of freetime, we can do  
something together.
