No, I am not trying to say either of those things. One way or another,
the combination of these two API's ought to be sufficient. I was merely
trying to articulate that I think the "get" API you added today is all
that we will need and use in Subclipse. Of course when I look at the code
I might find that I can in fact make use of the "is" API. All Subclipse
has today is a constant of ".svn". I replaced the constant with a method
call that returns the same value. Perhaps that code could be written
differently in some places to use the "is" API, but at a minimun the "get"
API should be all we need.
