You won't get any output in the dos/cmd box for a simple reason: TSVN
redirects that output to a file. It has to do that because otherwise
your script wouldn't be able to return a message/error to TSVN.

For example, our own hook script which checks the file headers for the
correct copyright year before every commit writes an error message which
is then shown in the progress dialog when the 'commit' fails.
