Ah. This is the part I don't understand.

Earlier, you say you crawl "upwards". Upwards from what? If it
doesn't depend on the selected files, then how does TSVN know what to
crawl upwards from?

In other words: If TSVN is getting those templates from properties on
directories, how does it know which directories to look at?
