feature request: Built-in suspend?...

I'm wondering if a built-in suspend feature would be considered...
 
For those of us who cannot easily change large scale issues like an
inherited (LARGE) project having too many dependencies on location (eg
C:\) or who cannot easily change build (code/data) locations (within the
workspace), then it'd be real nice to be able to suspend tortoise while
a data/code build was going on so that tortoise isn't jolted into
updating it's cache while the build is going on, which means that 50% of
CPU and 90+% of disk activity starts going to TSVNCache. Also the number
of directories and file types that the project is generating is a little
too cumbersome and conficting to easily manage this through ignores.
 
Currently, when I can, I use procexpl.exe to manually suspend TSVNCache
but this is not always possible (sometimes doing this will effectively
hang the machine).
 
In summary, a feature to suspend Tortoise activity so that work can be
completed in a reasonable amount of time on the machine (which otherwise
takes a lot more time because of TSVNCache activity). [Even in a more
well thought out project I can still see build type scenarious where
this would be a problem].
