[TSVN] Workaround for 64 bit TSVN

Hi dev,

thanks to all of you who boldly tried my 64 bit build.
You shall not be left without reward: I figured out how
to use the 32 bit EXEs with the 64 bit Explorer-plugin.

This is how to:

* have the files of the 32 bit TSVN somewhere
  (no installation necessary, just the extracted files)
* backup your tsvn64.reg file (just in case ..)
* modify the tsvn64.reg file in a way that ALL lines
  mentioning TortoiseProc.EXE or TortoiseMerge.EXE
  point to the 32 bit files.
* run / merge the tsvn64.reg file to update the registry

As a result, you should have a working 64 bit shell
extension plus a 64 bit TortoiseCache. The downside
of this is that the actual operations are still performed
within a 4GB process memory limit. So, huge check-ins
(> 20.000 added / modifed / removed files) after huge
merges may still hit that limit.

I am still investigating what keeps the 64 bit variants
from starting. So far, it looks like there is no DLL missing
(the name of the missing DLL whould have been reported
by the OS), but a system DLL has the wrong version.

Stefan.
