1) I don't think that would be good because there could be a different
version of Subversion than TSVN wants to use and that can cause errors
(use of features which aren't in this version or changed API calls/newer
methods). If so TSVN would have to check the version everytime before it
interacts with Subversion DLLs.

2) Easier usage with builtin DLLs for end-users. You don't have to
update both of them regularly.
