Well, that's not really possible. TSVN is a shell extension, yes, but
the shell doesn't provide a mechanism to interfere with the doubleclicks
on files (at least not without registering *all* filetypes and put TSVN
as the default application to open that filetype - and that's something
users would kill me for if I did that). We only have the context menu
where we can add our entries for *all* filetypes.

That's an idea we should talk about further. Just providing a three
level menu isn't a problem. But how should the settings dialog look like
in that case? (the page where you can set which entries appear on the
top menu).

We need both menu's (unfortunately). You see, it's not a requirement to
have the svn:needs-lock property set on files to actually lock them. So
the 'lock' entry must be on all files. If a file is already locked, the
'lock' entry is necessary because in that case it will steal the lock.
And you can 'unlock' a non-locked file because the file might be locked
in the repository but not in your working copy - in that case you will
'break' the lock.
