There are enough failed projects out there attempting to create an SCC
Proxy that I would strongly hesitate before trying to dive into that water
again. Although I would really like to see an SCC proxy (FrontPage
anyone?) the interface is probably too restrictive to allow an SVN-style
lock-less versioning system.
I do use (an older version of) AnkhSVN and have found it fairly useful for
the status overlays, although I must admit I don't really trust running
SVN operations using the program. I would appreciate it if someone could
create a plugin proxy that was as small as possible while leveraging as
much of the existing TortoiseSVN infrastructure as possible.

In general, this is something I would like to see. Personally, I think
that SCC would be a better approach just so that it can work in more
IDE's. All that being said, regardless of the approach that is taken,
shouldn't it be a goal of whatever is done to do a bit more than just run
the commands? Aren't most people going to expect to see status
information? What about hooking into actions too? If I
rename/delete/copy/move a file in the IDE, I would expect the integration
to intercept that and run the appropriate Subversion command.
My company would be willing to financially support the development of a
tool that could do this, whether it is done by Stefan or someone else. Our
one requirement, until we can be convinced otherwise, is that it should
leverage the existing TortoiseSVN dialogs and actions as much as possible.
Ideally, it would even tap into the TSVN status cache as well.
Personally, I would like to see this all rolled into TSVN. If there were
a small "SCC Proxy" that could not be made GPL, so be it. But the rest of
the code could ideally be part of TSVN.
