Do you pay for my bodyguard? Because I will need one - people will try
to kill me if I implemented something like this :)
Seriously: we're still improving the caching of the *local* status to
avoid slowing down the explorer too much. If we would contact a
repository on every access to a working copy, you couldn't really work
with the explorer anymore (and all "File Open/Save" dialogs in every
application you have).
And no, even with a lightning fast LAN, this would still make you throw
TSVN away because you can't use any application anymore due to the

It doesn't really matter if 'a lot of users' ask for it. If it can't be
done in a way that doesn't hog the system, I won't do it. And even those
users asking for it would then realize that they'd rather not have this
feature but be able to use the explorer.
