I don't really buy the potential performance impact argument.
TortoiseSVN already knows it is an old working copy because it adds an
"upgrade" entry to the right click menu... I found myself manually
right clicking on multiple folders to remember where all my working
copies were located. Without the visual hints of an icon, I'm sure I
missed a few too!

Nobody is saying you have to upgrade all working copies. This would
simply just search the specified locations and say "hey, I found these
working copies, select the ones you want to upgrade..."
