After changing the build system of TSVN and some tests, I have to
decline your request. I'm sorry.
The reason is simple:
If we enable ipv6 support, TSVN won't run anymore on those systems
where the ipv6 libs are not installed. And since even most XP systems
don't have those installed (it's an optional windows update), that is
a real showstopper.

So, no ipv6 support for the near future.
