Think about this for a second,

VSVN knows about the state of your working copy, so how does it do that?

The only way VSVN could have knowledge around what is changed, added
or removed is if it has an implementation of a working copy client.

If you have difficulty believing me, then change a file from one of
your projects outside of visual studio and see for yourself that VSVN
will use a file-modified glyph for the file you changed in the file
system.

VSVN as a tool is adequate, its not as polished as Ankh v2 - no
surprise there Ankh is built from the ground up to be integrated into
Visual Studio while the only thing that VSVN is doing is separating
money form your bank account for tooling that puts TSVN a open source
tool, inside Visual Studio - nothing more, and yet you still have the
same issue managing your subversion clients.
