Firstly, thanks for the quick, and courteous reply.

Excellent!

Would it not be trivial to make this process into a single context menu
item? (create the folder in repository, checkout (hide the warning), and
spawn the "Add" dialog)

It wouldn't add clutter because you'd only add it to unversioned items.

Again, Excellent!

Could TSVN not query svn to find the current ignore list to check? Then
if not covered, spawn a dialogue, with content generated by your already
written and excellent context menu for "Add to ignore list".

Incidently, if you point me in the right direction, I'd be happy to
attempt these features myself. Let me know which parts of the code base
to investigate, along with any developers howtos for tsvn that you know of.

Thanks again,
        Cameron.
