Subclipse (and TortoiseSVN) know and provide the list of files to commit,
but we do not provide the diffs. As far as Subclipse is concerned, that
is not something I would want to see us try to do. Commit is not really
the problem anyway, it is really checkout and update. When you do a
commit, you have a pretty good idea of what you are sending the server and
how long it will take, and the commit operation itself sends reasonably
decent status info to let you know what is doing. It would be nice if it
output some kind of bytes transferred info, but it is not critical.

I think checkout, and especially update, are the areas this is most
needed. Even if it was just the server saying "I am going to send you 16
files" before it sent any, that would be an improvement. Switch and merge
could also benefit from this.
