Why? The items could have little checkboxes next to them (like in the
TortoiseCVS add contents dialog), and folders could have three-stated
checkboxes (add none of the contained files, all of them, or only some).

Why not? There are many applications which are doing this. (See the
Windows Backup program for an example). Perhaps you can't use the
standard treeview control for this, but i don't think that difficulty in
implementation should hold back this feature..

Perhaps you should have a look at TCVS, to get an idea of what we have
in mind! They're actually doing this without using any custom controls,
and it basically has all features TSVN would need. (I'm referring to
1.8.0 RC4, i don't know if older builds had this feature already).
