That doesn't change the fact that I still want the feature. I've
figured out how to write a utility that does this by reading the
.svn/entries file in each WC directory, extract 'name', 'kind', and
'checksum' (looks like MD5) from each entry, and then replicate just
those files at the destination.

Combining this into a Beyond Compare plugin should suffice as a
reasonable solution. Maybe. I'd modify the source to TSVN, but the
setup requirements demand huge changes to my compile-time and runtime
environments that I'm going to risk over such a minor change. It is one
dialog, a little code to map dialog interaction to internal variables,
and calling the code that retrieves filenames from a WC and then simply
copies each file to the destination (plus 'delete' files marked for
deletion in the WC). Essentially a one hour task for someone who knows
the code base.
