Cookies are for HTTP clients. There are many programmatic HTTP clients that support cookies that are not browsers. For example: http://hc.apache.org/httpclient-3.x/cookies.html

As an HTTP client, TortoiseSVN could choose to support or not support cookies -- it's just a matter of honoring the "Set-Cookie" HTTP header.

However, I don't think this problem or feature request would be specific to TortsoiseSVN, as the HTTP client is actually the Subversion binaries themselves. Seems like cookie support is a feature request that should be submitted to core Subversion and baked-in, so that ALL subversion clients that support HTTP would support cookies...
