That's a bad idea. You will run into various problems if you turn it
off. Apart of course from the fact that you lose the whole protection
UAC gives you.

Because an UAC prompt doesn't come automatically but has to be
requested. And of course, TSVN never requests one because it would be
very annoying to get that for every single TSVN command.
Just set the access rights correctly.
