The downside is reliance on an external tool, which would most likely have negative effects on the non-unix users.  I'm confident that patch is available for all unix platforms, but the windows folks would need cygwin then, I believe....I guess this is a large downside.
It's easily solved.  Monotone could just redistribute the appropriate GnuWin32 tools:
GnuWin32 is a collection of native Win32 ports of GNU tools.  The tools don't need Cygwin, and they don't stick their head in the sand and pretend drive letters don't exist.

Just be sure to rename the tools, say by adding "mtn-" to the front of the program names, so they don't collide with anyone else's stuff on the path.
