I think there are two big reasons for this:

1) It is a lot of work. Reusing TortoiseSVN could drastically reduce the
effort, as well as improve the quality. You would be starting off with
the assumption that the end result is going to be good.

2) The SCC NDA. This is not compatible with the GPL and makes it hard to
build a community. My idea is for someone to write an SCC Proxy that
shields TortoiseSVN from the NDA. The proxy would just be a DLL and
whatever it took to register the SCC provider. It could then hide the
details of the NDA behind its own interface that could be made public.
Someone could then get the public side of this interface to work with
TortoiseSVN.

It is probably a pipe dream, but it sounds feasible and could make this
work.
