Sorry, no can do. The Subversion API doesn't allow to specify this.
You'd have to ask for this feature on their mailing list - once they
implement this in their API, then TSVN will of course start using it.

How would that work? If you have a subfolder from a different
repository, then
* you can't commit atomically, because you must commit to each
repository separately
* the urls of those repositories can be completely different. So how
could you know what to change in the url of such a subfolder if you e.g.
create a tag? Just assume something?
