There's no need to lecture me about the list control. Owner data is used
in the log dialog and some other dialogs in TSVN that use the list control.
And of course turning off redrawing is done too.

The only reason why there's no owner-data used in the status list
control (that's used in the commit dialog) is that it's a lot of work,
and for most working copies wouldn't gain any speed improvements. Just
as an example, my wc of the TSVN source with all the externals currently
shows a size of 5GB in 30'000 files (that's of course including all the
.svn folders and its content). And sorting/filling the list control
takes half a second on my machine (which is not very fast).

However, if you want to contribute more than lectures, feel free to
provide a patch.
