right drag export of files request

I know the subject name might sound a little backwards as I know you've purposefully removed the feature from tortoise now (and I cam see why), but please here me out!

(changelog quote:)
- CHG: The right-drag context menu now only shows "Export" if a versioned
       folder is dragged (for files, the windows 'copy' does the same). (Stefan)

I can see exactly why you'd say this, but the situation I use subversion in is almost exclusivly with the "needs-lock" property on, which also adds the windows "read only" property. Using the export command on a folder then grabs all the files out AND removes the read-only property, if all I do is use the windows "copy" command the read-only propeties stay on.

I know it's easily argued that I can just highlight those files and remove the read-only property, but I'm in a situation where the majority of people using subversion aren't logically minded, and I've tried to get them into the habbit of using an export command whever possible as it covers all the bases (copying versioned folder to versioned folder, then commiting anew, or versioned to unversioned).

Any opinions on the possibility this could be a check box option in the settings (off by default)?
