Are you aware that neither of those two features are part of Subclipse?

The compare UI comes from the Eclipse Compare component that is part
of the core Eclipse Platform. We provide the Model and it provides
the View and Controller. Similarly, the Synchronize View is part of
the core Eclipse Team component. AFAIK, we have fairly minimal
control over how the UI behaves in either of these tools.

This is Subclipse mailing list. Subversive is a different product,

I am not aware of the current state of the CVS UI, but I know that
when these features were originally implemented in Subclipse they were
more or less identical to how CVS used them as that as where we
learned how to use the API.

If someone wants to implement a compare feature that uses the
Synchronize view they are certainly welcome to try. We accept
patches.
