   Mark, I am using Tortoise occasionally, but most of the time I have
to deal with Eclipse CVS and Subclipse, so I find it beneficial to have
similar icons and I like variant you just posted with minimalistic set
of icons, which makes it easier to navigate to frequently used operations.

   Another thing to consider is to try to make Subclipse team menu
shorter. Maybe move some stuff into submenu, probably something ot
frequenly used (edit conflicts, mark resolved, mark deleted, export,
copy, cleanup, configure branches).
   I also noticed that there is no "show annotations" or "blame" action.
How that happens that Subclipse does not have it?

   BTW, I've suggested that before, but why don't add a preference and
allow users to choose what sets of icons they prefer - Eclipse CVS alike
or Tortoise alike.

   regards,
   Eugene
