You surely mean "can make" ;-)

If we link to the svn trunk we will not have a stable Subversion basis
for a while and will IMHO not be able to release stable TortoiseSVN builds.

Why not release the current TSVN-trunk based on the current 1.6.x branch
now (after a short beta)? However, the question is if this will be
called 1.6.10, 1.7.0, 2.0, or 2010-05 (see prevision discussions).

Immediately after that TSVN-trunk may be switched to SVN-trunk.

Don't get me wrong. I'm always working with nightly builds from
TSVN-trunk and am quite comfortable with that, but releasing based on
Subversion trunk seems a bit risky to me.
