It's not possible with TSVN to specify a username for file:// repositories.
But if you later want to move your repository and change the username,
just add the pre-revprop-change hook script and edit the usernames later
(depending on the number of commits you already made, I would suggest
using the command line client with a script that changes all the
usernames automatically in one step).
