But how does TSVN know you're working in a branch WC? There's nothing
in Subversion which distinguishes a branch from any other directory -
it's only a naming convention which is not set in stone. Same with
tags - I know TSVN does warn when committing to a directory named
"tags" but that's a little different situation, and how many "special
cases" should be hardwired into TSVN? (side note: I'm going to have a
portion of one of my repositories soon that has tag-like directories,
but they'll be called "releases" instead of "tags", so that won't even
work for me).
