Would adding a "commit as: " combobox, next to the "Keep Locks" checkbox
to the commit dialog be an acceptable compromise? The selection change
would cause the OK button to, onclick, pop up an authentication dialog
(if the user has no details in the cache; I don't know if the auth cache
just remembers one set of details) for the new user, something like
that? It would still, I think, be prone to error, because there'd be no
nice way to prompt the user all the time if they're sure they mean to
commit as who they say they are! Perhaps an optional schizophrenia TSVN
mode? :)

As to the original email, I'm aware of the issue's importance, and had
started work on it about a week ago, then stalled as I accepted a job
offer and shifted into flathuntinginlondon mode... ;)

As a client-side alternative, does anyone know if the shell extension
view program is scriptable? It can turn extensions on and off, and if
one could add that to a Windows startup, that'd do what you want in
terms of showing/hiding the extension for different accounts, wouldn't it?
