at work i have minimal/no svn. most development is done on remote live/staging servers (jeah frightens me too).
at home 100% is local and in svn.
i believe my work situation is not so uncommon :/

for an universal solution, the recursive listing via winscp would be the way to go (works with ftp), but it's slow on deep trees.
maybe asynchronously building of the directory-tree and using some kind of intelligent cache like you mentionend, would hide the slowness of that approach from the user (at least caching will, after the initial directory-tree is build).
