Are you serious?  I'm going to have to agree with Ben's response---you
need to get a new IT guy (or at least convince him of his stupidity) or
get him to leave.  I have a client that has an IT guy like that; the
client pays the IT guy to manage the client machines on the network and
I handle the server stuff because their IT guy can't handle anything
but Windows Server and a mouse.  *shrug*

That said, if you are stuck running on Windows, see if there is a way
that you can adapt it to fit.  Windows has the concepts of users and
groups down, though I don't know if you can (as quickly) set up
something that runs like bzr over ssh does.  You may be able to get
something going with Cygwin, but I'd rather use a real Linux box
instead of Cygwin for performance and security reasons.
