Sorry, no. There's currently no way to use the --parents option in TSVN.
The reason is that this option only works properly for paths/urls that
have no chars in them which would require escaping. As soon as you have
e.g., a space in the target path/url, you'd get not what you want.
That's why I've changed TSVN to not use that option at all (better to
get an error than a bogus directory).
