No can do. It always works in explorer, and can work in some other file
managers as well.

I don't see the problem. If you right click on a non-versioned folder
you will see only 2 entries in the context menu: TortoiseSVN and
Checkout. You can even make the Checkout entry go away (in the settings
dialog) so there is only 1 entry. And that is all the evidence you will
see that TSVN is even there.

Only when you right click in a *versioned* folder will you see the
fuller TSVN context menu. Isn't that exactly what you are asking for?
Have you tried using it at all yet?
