You contradict yourself. First you say that TSVN should use the already
installed svn binaries, then you complain about the dll hell.
That's an oxymoron - you can't have one without the other. And that's
why TSVN will never, ever use anything that's not shipped with TSVN but
installed on your system (apart from system dlls).
