So I had to make up my mind whether to cancel the commit (which had already run for 2 hours) or to allow for a longer upload time for the other files for the web server.

 From a corporate environment upstream bandwidth is normally not an
issue. From home I'd suggest that you configure QoS/traffic shaping in
your router to give your file transfer temporarily a higher priority.

Subversion can handle slow connections, but not a complete abort, which
a "pause" action would look like.

Since you claim it's easy to do, please send a patch with the complete
implementation. Don't forget the server part. ;)
