There are too many issues with what you're asking TSVN to do. Thanks
for the input though.
Some questions you may want to answer if you decide to continue this
further:
1. What is *your* definition of incompatible (specifically referring to
SVN clients)? (maybe you'll see the problem when you try to answer this)
2. I have two versions of the command line svn installed on my system
(one is in the default path and is older). How could TSVN detect that
there was another newer svn command line installed?
3. Have you seen the video "How to Protect Your Open Source Project
From Poisonous People"
http://video.google.com/videoplay?docid=-4216011961522818645
 (granted, the video does devolve into a bit of a whiny
complainer-fest)?
4. Could you also answer Stephan's questions posed in his earlier post?

Yes it does. I was also introduced to it from this list.
