At the beginning of this discussion/thread, I was completely with you.
But then (you might have noticed) there were some posts which already
dealt with how to implement this. Just to refresh your memory a little
(no offense):
- authentication
- the %USER% variable for the URL
- and then some more ideas on how to further "improve" it with
sorting/filtering/... the issue list.
That's when it hit me: this would never end until TSVN would be a
complete front end for the issue tracker. And that's when I decided to
drop that idea and just fire up the browser - after all most issue
trackers already use the browser as frontend.

Even with all the good ideas floating around here, we have to keep
concentrating on the fact that we're talking about Subversion clients
here, not bugtracking clients. And that's what we should work on and
spend our time: improving TSVN as a Subversion client.
