For me, also. I want to make sure there is no red anywhere.

I am sort of going to go with the "use a template" approach, which is (to me) the obviousest way of doing it.

I can't believe there's no automatic-copy available though; every other build tool that I use has a "run this batch file when finished" option. How come there's no equiv in TSVN ?

If it is a security issue, then at least let *me* the user/manager of the system decide whether it'll be a valid thing to do.

Having to get people to remember to "copy blah.template to blah" is obviously not a show-stopper, but shouldn't be necessary in this day-and-age. The workflow here basically involves cleaning your working directory when you've finished committing stuff (don't like leaving stuff hanging around).
