Great to hear I'm not the only one thinking about these things. (Though
I'm far from using svn in a production environment anyway :-( )

This sounds technically tempting and might be a good alternative
approach. A bugtraq URL could alternatively contain a SOAP URL or a
"file download" location.
For a first attempt a non-SOAP approach seems more usable to me since
it's a lot easier to have existing bugtracking tool deliver some
plaintext list than a webservice. In Trac something like this is already
available in comma-separated, tab-separated or even RSS format.

I think this should actually not be done by TSVN but with a pre-commit
hook which contacts the issue tracking system, because then valid bug
IDs are ensured independently of the svn client being used.
