I doubt you are going to have much luck requesting a modification that describes a basic and underlying usage concept of subversion. Also, showing statuses against the repository is quite resource intensive. The repo would have to be polled all the time.
There is a way to get the info that you are look from though using the CFM dialog. From the Tsvn doce:
It's often very useful to know which files you have changed and also which files got changed and committed by others. That's where the command TortoiseSVN → Check For Modifications... comes in handy. This dialog will show you every file that has changed in any way in your working copy, as well as any unversioned files you may have.
If you click on the Check Repository then you can also look for changes in the repository. That way you can check before an update if there's a possible conflict. You can also update selected files from the repository without updating the whole folder. By default, the Check Repository button only fetches the remote status with the checkout depth of the working copy. If you want to see all files and folders in the repository, even those you have not checked out, then you have to hold down the Shift key when you click on the Check Repository button.
