This is not impossible (of course), but it requires quite a bit of work
and first of all a clean definition on how this should even work.

You're talking about custom properties. Custom properties can be text or
binary, and a property doesn't have a flag which tells TSVN if it is
text or binary. Text data of course can be shown without big problems.
But what about binary data?

Then: how would you configure which custom properties should be allowed
to be shown as a separate explorer column?

That's something you have to request on the Subversion mailing list. The
config file is read and used by the Subversion library exclusively -
TSVN doesn't even touch that file.
