You can file an issue, but I do not see us adding this feature to
Subclipse. It is more likely the general feature, implemented
differently, will be pushed into core SVN. Since TortoiseSVN is
written in C++, it has access to the entire Subversion API. We only
have access to a small subset. From what I can see, TortoiseSVN is
using API that lets it mix in configuration you can store in
properties, with what Subversion already has in its configuration
files. We do not have access to this API. I suspect the idea of
storing configuration in the repository will make it into core SVN
before these other API's are exposed via Java.
