Please file an issue about this. I don't have much time to work on TSVN
the next two or three days, so...

Wow! That's bad. In that case, we should even hide those options and
just show the revision instead!

Another issue please.

Nothing? It should work as before. I'll have a look...

Good point. Another issue please ;)

Oh no, please not. I really hate such warnings, because users tend to
just "click them away". The 'guard' against such changes is in the
repository itself, since you have to install a hook-script to make this
work. I think that should be enough.
