feature request: set base priority of TSVNCache

From: Alan Jay Weiner <alan_at_ajw.com>

I have found TSVNCache will sometimes get very busy and slow down my machine. (I
have a huge working set - two actually - and am running in virtual machines;
either or both may play into it; I don't notice it on other projects)

I discovered that if I set the base priority to 'idle' I don't have any problems
with this, and response when I want to see things like icon updates seems just
as fast as ever.

I've been doing this for several months with no noticed ill effects - except
sometimes I forget to set the priority and I'm reminded when my machine gets
slow. (I've taken to doing this with several apps now, btw; most things seem
just as responsive as ever...)

Would it be possible to have a setting that would do this automatically? (or
even do it always; I'm not sure if there's any reason why *not* to do so)

I also tend to kill and restart (uh, let it restart itself) TSVNCache when it
gets to 100MB or so working set - again, I'm running in virtual machines
(several simultaneously, on my notebook, with limited memory) so I may be more
sensitive to this.

I would like to be able to have it do this automatically also. I know you've
worked on its memory footprint in the past, but I've seen 200-250MB working sets
and that does affect my working in VMs.

And regardless of these, thanks for all the work you all have put in - I keep
threatening to switch to Linux (no, Vista! No! Go away!! :) but then I think
"I won't have TSVN..."
