The overwhelming amount of TSVN is not actually shell extension - it's just
two ordinary applications - one which runs all the time in the background
called TSVNCache, and the other which is invoked, with command line
parameters, by the shell extension. (TortoiseProc.exe).

It's difficult to see much advantage of converting to .NET for any of it,
really - interfacing to the SVN libraries would be harder (though I think
there is already a .NET->SVN interface around), app startup would be slower
which would be a disadvantage for TortoiseProc. Memory footprint would be
larger, which would be perceived as a disadvantage for TSVNCache.

I'm not anti-.NET BTW - I like programming with it, but I'm not sure
converting TSVN would bring much benefit.
