Very bad idea. Automatic updates can only lead to problems. What do you
do if there's a conflict during an update?
Or if someone has a file open with unsafed changes, and your automatic
update modifies the underlying file? The user would loose his changes.

No, as explained several times already, there's no way to return a value
on the command line. TSVN is a GUI app, not a console app.

But where would that return value be passed on?

Use the right tool for the right job: use the command line tool.
