If they need svn to run your program then they will have to install
it. If you don't like that then eitherwrite your own program which
links to the subversion C libraries directly, or use the other
language bindings (python, perl, etc.)

Did you even read the big red and yellow box which says that binary
distributions come out about a week after the source release? SVN
1.5.1 was released last Friday. You want us to modify TortoiseSVN and
make a new release because you can't wait a couple of days for the SVN
binaries? In any case, 1.5.0 is compatible, it is just missing the
latest bug fixes.

That is a version-independent way, provided svn.exe is the same minor
version number as TortoiseSVN, i.e. 1.5.x.
