TortoiseSVN 1.7 test drive

I'm was taking TortoiseSVN- for a
test drive today, and here is my experience.

Converting my WC failed:
Insufficient NODES rows for 'e:\svn\my app
name\.svn\tmp\wcng\src\Tools\SomeProject\SomeFile.cs'. Try a 'Cleanup'.
Cleanup did not help (as always).

No worries, did a clean checkout. Surprisingly, everything seems to work
very well:-)

But I'm wondering, are there any plans in 1.7 for supporting sharing
pristines between several WC's?
I wish I could (in config file) specify a shared location for pristines.
Ref-counts + deleting unrefed pristines would have to be ignored in this
case I guess,
since ref-counts can't easily be tracked back to the WC's from the
shared pristine, since WC's can be moved or simply deleted.
But I would not mind. Hard drive is cheap but network traffic is not,
and I would easily trade:-)

If no one is looking into this, I'm considering adding such feature as I

BTW: For fun, I tried deleting all files in the pristine. Diff of a
changed file did "work", but showed an empty before-file (strangely, I
had expected a file not found error). Then I tried a revert of a changed
file. This failed with file not found in pristine (as expected). The
problem is, the file disappeared (maybe not a bug) but worse, the WC was
no longer recognized as a WC, not even after restoring the pristine.
Possibly, the wc.db became corrupt or locked, I don't know, at least it
worked again when I restored a backup of wc.db. Scary bug me thinks. The
WC should not become corrupt just because some file in pristine is
missing. Ideally, it should ask to download the missing file, but I
guess that's asking too much:-)

PS: These errors may be specific to TortoiseSVN, thou I have a feeling
they are not.
