Make Tortoise the best tool for learning command line and script writing

Up until now i have been using Tortoise SVN UI exclusively. Even with a relatively complex project with multiple externals doing simple things like commits, updates etc are a breeze with context menu. But recently branching was introduced into release cycle and things became very tedious. I decided to see whether come tasks could be automated but working the command line is not that easy. I mean, it can be done but it's still not something one does for fun. :) It takes time and effort to figure out all the command line SVN arcana.
I've spent hours getting very correct but infinitely useless error messages. Searching internet for explanations and solutions. Hitting walls of bad documentation and limits of my mental flexibility ...

And then i thought that it would be absolutely amazing if there was a way to record all the commands that are executed behind the curtains when someone does something via UI.
That way i could execute all the tedious things i do now. Check the command-log file and replace some things with variables and voila - script is done!!!
That way learning command line would also be very easy.

How difficult could it be to implement?

Of course the came technique could be applied to other Tortoise products like Git etc
