[TSVN] export: warn on overwrite

From: Knud Boucher <knud_at_signifile.com>

Problem: "TortoiseSVN:Export..." gives no warnings when overwriting.
Solution: Add a checkbox "[]Show Warnings" to "Browse For Folder"
           if that checkbox is checked, and export tries to
replace/overwrite existing files/folders, then show a dialog like:
****
The file %1 you are exporting to %2 already exists in that location. what
do you want to do?
[Skip][Replace][Skip All][Replace All][Cancel]
****

Steps:
- in working copy select a folder and from the context menu select
"TortoiseSVN:Export...".
- in "Browse For Folder" dialog choose a folder and click "OK".
- TortoiseSVN immediately starts exporting while showing path to source folder.
PROBLEM: The user can accidentally overwrite existing files.

Thanks for your great product, Best of luck!
