The only snag you might hit is picking up unversioned files as well
(including copies of your WC files in .svn directories). If you have
any unversioned files in a group you've selected, I've found that the
TSVN tab doesn't show up in the Properties dialog.

I think you can defeat this (at least the copies in .svn) by telling
Search to not look in hidden folders, but it's been over a week since
I last did this so I don't recall exactly.
