That's not possible (i.e., it wouldn't work).
For Cut/Copy to work, TSVN would have to stay in memory and then catch
the paste operation. But the context menu handler isn't 'resident' in
memory and therefor when you would call "SVN Paste", the paste command
would have no idea *what* to paste because the source of the cut/copy
operation is not known.
