You seem to be referring to update but I'm worried about status. If
your idea to make update faster causes status to be slower then it's
probably a non-starter.

Also, I find your argument a bit odd: you want to optimise single
revision working copies because you think they are important, but you
seem to be implying that TSVN users won't be using them. If you think
they are important why won't TSVN users think the same?
