I really doubt that. All you can say is that *you* have no access to the
server to change those. But you definitely can ask someone with access
to the server to set this up properly. Even if it's hosted by another
company.

Yes.

Because TSVN doesn't have just the checkout dialog?
Adding this to *every* dialog would be very bad UI design.
Just ask someone who's responsible for the server to set it up properly.
