  I thought you say that.
  In my opinion such representation is actually usability issue. Because
they used table it is hardly fit anywhere on the screen (except maybe
maximized) and really hard to navigate without mouse.

  Also note that they are using quite strange filtering. If you select
root of the tree on left panel, right panel would show all resources in
the affected paths and not just those in the root folder, then when you
go down to the tree it will narrow shown list to that subtree.

  I think that idea of compressed folders (heavily used in other Eclipse
views, e.g. package explorer and synchronize view) provides much better
usability.

  I also added buttons for enabling/disabling comments and paths areas
to the view toolbar.

  By the way, I noticed that when "show tags" is enabled history view is
shown considerable slower. I wonder maybe it should update tags info
asynchronously after view is shown...

  Also, how about changes for tags support I've been suggesting at some
point?
