[TSVN] SCC Provider (was: Re: [TSVN] Technical questions on status caching)

I would really like to see an SCC Provider added to TortoiseSVN some day.
At a minimum, I really think it makes sense that anyone writing an SCC
provider, ought to consider using TortoiseProc.exe as much as possible for
the UI. The TSVN dialogs all have so much polish and embedded features
contained within them, it just doesn't make any sense not to use them.

Isn't there a clever way to get around the open source issue? Couldn't we
maybe create an SCC wrapper DLL that is closed source and handles the
bare-bones SCC requirements, but just calls out to TortoiseSVN code for
everything else? I signed that NDA years ago, and there was not a lot to
the API, just a handful of methods.

It just seems like 90% or more of what is needed in an SCC provider is
already written in TSVN.

Finally, I think when the locking feature is available, an SCC interface
will become more desired. In SCC you just have the ability to provide a
more seamless editing/locking experience than you could provide from
Explorer. Today, I am happy to just use TSVN along side Visual Studio,
but if I needed to lock files as I edited them, then an interface would
work better.
