Completely wrong.

Performance is definitely limited by SVN itself, not by TSVN.

Status and commit of a larger tree cost the same time
with TSVN and with command line SVN on windows.
In contrary: The TSVN guys spend a lot of work into working-around this issue,
for example by sacrifying correctness of overlays, or by adding extra
non-trivial logic to their code to optimize data passed to SVN
(causing side effects for the user).

You definitely should take the performance aspect very seriously!

99% of all SVN users work on windows;
and 99% of all windows SVN users use TSVN.
So whatever Stefan and co need - do it!
