   I'm referring to the Eclipse enhancement request to make CVS and SVN
resource histories to use the same view. Eg. providing an appropriate
content panel depends from the selected resource. See

   I just have no place to put another perspective to my workspace
(java, debug and profile eat all the space left at the right from
toolbar). I also got used to use cvs/svn repository view when I need to
see what is actually under version control and use drag-n-drop from repo
view into resource history a lot (still have to port cvs fix this for
for subclipse) and I find it handy when digging into the history of java
code, such as investigating differences between branches and so on.

   I also had to use svn repository view several times to delete and
rename resources in the repository. It seem really neat feature.

   Right. I just hope that you can at least make this icon look
different then on used for CVS, but it should also be similar to the one
used for CVS, to you can see that it is also repository.
   Anyway, please tell me if attached icon look better for you? I used
some fragments from tortoise icons.
   If you'd like this direction, it would probably make sense to use the
same character for "resource annotation" icon (current one with lens
used in tortoise doesn't really click) and maybe combine it with "clip"
object used in CVS annotation icon.
