[Subclipse-users] Enhancement? "Smarter Browsing" Browse repo starting at current depth, rather than root.

I'd like to submit an enhancement request, but I want to filter it
through the list first:

When, for instance, I do a switch, currently, the following happens:

Working copy is at:
https://myrepo/projectA/branches/featureA
And I want to switch to:
https://myrepo/projectA/branches/featureB

...In the switch dialog, if I hit the "Select..." button, it drops me
all the way to the repo root:
https://myrepo/

However, I'd prefer to start at the current location, so the desired behavior:

Working copy is at:
https://myrepo/projectA/branches/featureA
And I want to switch to:
https://myrepo/projectA/branches/featureB

...In the switch dialog, if I hit the "Select..." button, it would
drop me in the current path:
https://myrepo/projectA/branches/featureA

...then I go up one directory, and select the featureB branch.

TortoiseSVN got me used to this convention, and this behavior seems to
work best for me almost all the time, so I find myself wishing for
this feature when switching/merging, etc.

I realize there would need to be some sort of error handling when the
current WC location no longer exists in the repo, but this is
something that I think, say, TortoiseSVN handles in a fairly intuitive
way.

So, I want to confirm that this enhancement request is:
A) Valid (there's no config option to enable the behavior)
B) Is not already requested

Please let me know...

Thanks,
Jamie
