Searching the mailing list archives, this question has come up a
couple of times:

http://svn.haxx.se/users/archive-2013-08/0552.shtml
http://svn.haxx.se/users/archive-2013-04/0119.shtml
http://svn.haxx.se/users/archive-2011-08/0422.shtml
http://svn.haxx.se/tsvn/archive-2010-04/0075.shtml

But none of these threads really brings the discussion to a close (and
it's not clear whether it's easily implementable within the current
svn design).

Maybe it's a good idea, whether or not it's doable, to at least add
this to the issue tracker as a feature request.

Zvika, feel free to enter this into the issue tracker.
