So you're suggesting that TSVN ship with Subversion client libraries
for EVERY past version of Subversion (to have total backward
compatibility - that's seven versions of the libraries just to cover
the latest release of each of the 1.x lines), then attempt to detect
what version a given WC needs and unload/reload the right version for
each operation? I don't believe the WC has that kind of information in
it in the first place.

And you're still ranting and raving about this in the wrong place. WC
upgrades are done by the SVN libraries.

And in doing so, you still haven't "solved" the problem when you have
another client that's a later release of Subversion than you have for
Tortoise - now Tortoise can't operate on that WC at all.
