It is for me?
I use it for software development (Sourceforge project)
and backup at home.
Except for this date feature it operates exceptionally well.

With Tortoise svn my non geek wife uses it quite happily
to back up here client data. Great tool.

Unless its really going to mess with the core code, perhaps
this feature could be added as an optional use?

Just thought it might spread the use of subversion a little more.
