I'm not sure what your reasons were but from my POV (as someone who used to build on Windows from time to time), the two problems were:

1) svn was only used for this while we had migrated to hg

2) svn is darn slow, which neither hg nor git (especially with shallow clones, see "git clone --depth 1") are

I don't think the annoyance itself of having to install git is much to worry about, since 1) it's a one time cost 2) it's quite easy 3) many developers or packagers are bound to already use git for other projects.
