[TSVN] A "complete" Tortoise-based distribution?

Have you ever given any thought to providing a complete "Subversion"
distribution as part of Tortoise. By that, I mean a single install into a
single location that installs the command-line client. perhaps some of the
bindings like JavaHL, as well as the Tortoise pieces? They would all be
built with the same compiler with the same code patches so that they could
all share the same dependencies?

Ideally, the Subversion libraries would be packaged as DLL's that were
shared by all of the pieces as well. However, given the current size,
which I consider fairly small by today's standards, that is not critical
for me.

It seems like only Tortoise is capable of pulling this off, and it would
be a nice enhancement over the current scenarios.

Even if you would not want to do this, I would be interested in knowing
the feasibility of it. It seems like you, Stefan, have probably done the
most in this area and probably know what the problems would be.

Anyone else think this would be a good idea?

Mark
