OK, then may I suggest someone explains in the answer why/how they
are dissimilar? It would give those who don't mind about that
distinction some choice. [My present position is I'm trying to
setup a repository in such a way that facilitates access to as many
in our research group as possible. I'd tend to advocate using the
shell, and though I don't know how TSVN integrates into the shell
yet, would probably consider it an advantage. But I can't impose my
interface choices on others, and people have asked about GUI
access.] RapidSVN may be sufficient for their needs. Explaining
what it lacks may spur on the RapidSVN developers as well as
educating TSVN newbies about effective usage. It might also
illuminate what is considered to be in the scope of "similarity" for
this question, as other tools appear.
