But there's no way in telling if the user applies a patch file, or if
TSVN started TMerge with a 'temporary' patchfile (to show just the
differences of folders).
And some users are more comfortable with single pane view - only if
they want to *apply* the patch (not just review it), then they have to
temporarily switch to two pane view...
