  Right. I was going to make this optional, so user can choose.

  Right. Copy info just added after resource name.

  That is why I've asked how to find if log entry is a folder or not.
  I can actually get a RemoteResource for each log entry and that give
enough info, but it is very slow to do it one by one. So, I wonder if
there is a better way, e.g. get all remote resources in one call.
  As a simplest way I can do some heuristics based on the presence of
the folder's path in a log. In any case user would have choice to switch
to flat view.

  It would be nice if these actions were documented in javadoc or even
better if log entry would use some kind of enumeration for this.
Currently I just used icons from pending view and was thinking if it
would be better to use same overlays as on sync view (e.g. left blue
arrow with +, - and no sign in them).
  By the way, what will be in a copy info for R action?

  I see...

  Ok. Let me play with that.
