And what, realistically, would that other Subversion client/task be on
the typical TSVN host - a single-user Windows development workstation?

I understand that the Subversion working copy library is
bullet-proofed against such possibilities, but is there a way to
bypass it?

We're starting to see horrendous prepare-to-commit times (after the
dialog is open, before the listbox is filled with modified files). I
thought it was performing diffs on the large-ish binary files I
recently added to the repository (a handful of files, each less than 2
MB), but if the problem is file count, the outlook is grim - I can
remove the binaries, but I can't reduce the number of files in my
source tree. And I only have on the order of 1000s of files... How can
people live with much, much larger repositories?
