Well, really at this point it's almost pointless for him to use a true
working copy (at least a WC pointing at your repository) and TSVN, if
he's never going to connect back to your repository.

1. Export a copy on your end, zip it up and send to him.
2. He unpacks twice - once to a "pristine" copy, once to a "working" copy
3. He does work in the working copy.
4. When ready to send work to you, he performs a diff between the
pristine and working copies. He sends the resulting patchfile to you
(GNU diff has been ported to Win32 command line).
5. You apply the patch to your WC and commit.
6. When you have an update for him, you create a patch from your WC
using the revision created in step 5 as the "base" revision and send
this patch to him.
7. He applies the patch to his WC, then copies that immediately to the
pristine copy (assuming he's made no changes since sending you a
patch), and continues work in his WC.

Or maybe I'm way off here?
