It's currently not possible to configure a Subversion client like that.

We're not on a witch hunt at all. The only thing we did was suggesting
that you try a different configuration. If you expect us to first test
our suggestions ourselves, you're simply expecting too much. It
shouldn't be too much work for you to try a different configuration, but
we would have to first set up a test environment.

Way out of line? I guess you haven't been on this list very long...
That was not a snappy comment of mine - well maybe a little. But did you
really expect a nice warm feeling comment from me after you basically
called TSVN bad names? You ranted a lot about how TSVN could not have a
feature 'all other tools' have had for years.

So, I'm telling you this now again (I did before, if you read my answer
again): this kind of feature would have to be implemented in the
Subversion library, not TSVN. So you have to ask for this on the
Subversion mailing list.
