That's only really necessary for 'major' upgrades, i.e., if the second
(or first, if we ever get to version 2) version number changes.
Intermediate updates where only the third number changes don't require
updating all clients at the same time.

We've discussed this before, and we won't do that. Because whatever we
bundle, we have to support - and supporting TSVN is more than enough
work already.

Added param /remote in r16292.

Sorting the columns is not really suitable, since the user can rearrange
the columns and that new arrangement is remembered.

For apps that don't have a command line client, sure, having scripting
ability over all UIs is good. But there already is a command line client
which provides everything you need to script commands for Subversion -
there's no need to provide our own scripting too. At least not for tasks
that don't require an UI (or users don't even want the UI).
