Make it point to URL?Rev. That way,
anybody can open it from anywhere.

Repository browser. Maybe in the WC
as well (right-drag context menu).
Finally, the SVN property page could
display the URL?Rev combination as well.

No, I would not want to abuse the copy op.
If we can't put our drop objects into PIDLs
with reasonable effort, then there will be
no drag'n'drop link support.

However, <CTRL><C> should copy the URL?Rev
as plain text into the clipboard. If dnd
is not possible, I would go for a context
menu entry to create the LNK file.
