One can only install one version of TSVN on a given system in the
first place (aside from maybe Win32 & Win64, in which case most people
already know what they're doing). So wouldn't this be moot anyway,
unless you're sharing a WC with multiple clients PCs/users, which you
aren't supposed to be doing in the first place?

That functionality would have to be provided in the core SVN libraries
first. I believe this same question was asked in the last week or 2 on
this list.
