First of all, I certainly wouldn't call that a 'very restrictive setup'
you have there. If you need such a feature, it means that all your devs
commit from the same computer _with the same logon_! That's not
restrictive, that's more of an invitation for security breaches.

That said: the config file you mention is not from TSVN but is used and
handled by the Subversion library. We can't change/add anything in
there. If you want something changed there (like your feature), you have
to ask for this on the Subversion mailing list.
