I'm not really too keen to enter this argument, but I would just say that I
think that a lot of the issues I'm observing are just bugs, not really
anything more subtle.

I think you're right that a service could be made to have very low impact
on the system - and currently TSVN has negative effects far beyond those it
should theoretically need to (not necessarily *T*SVN's fault), so there is
plenty of margin for changing where the time is wasted...

It's not trivial though, to develop a service, deal with all the
installation and permissions issues, and cope with the fact that Win9x
won't work like that anyway.

I think we should review performance again when we've stopped the
completely unnecessary directory wandering, and see if it still needs
looking at.

ATM, I'm only looking at what it does when you press F5, and I don't think
this is going to be much affected by clever background invalidation schemes
