No. Windows GUI tools should be programmed to respect the windows
settings of the user. If the user checks the "don't use recycle bin"
option, all apps that pretend to be Windows apps should obey that.

I can't figure out why you find recycle bin management a problem. To
empty it, right click and select "empty" from the context menu. How
hard is that? It has a setting so that it will only use a certain
percentage of the drive (default 10%). I have never, worried about it.
  Stuff goes in the bin and then goes away automatically when the newer
stuff in it equals 10% of the drive.

There is right click on the bin and select empty - sounds extremely
sensible to me and also size gets managed automatically, also pretty

This is BS. You don't need to review the bin.

OK. All command line tools on Windows, Unix or Mac OS X are the same.
Correct consistent behaviour is arguably that the file should disappear
altogether for all of these platforms. I might as well complain that
rm doesn't put stuff in the trash on my Mac.

TortoiseSVN as a GUI tool and one that claims to integrate with Windows
Explorer should respect recycle bin settings.
