This touches a personal gripe of mine, handling changes across projects.
At work, we also often split our development into separate Eclipse
projects (just like with plugins) and it's annoying to have to see
changes peacemeal, but it's even worse to have to commit it peacemeal.

To fix this for commits, in the case where the projects in question all
share a common root, the commit logic itself can handle this as a
special case (by iterating over all projects that need committing, group
them by parents (if the parent is a WC of the same repository) and
execute the commit on a 'per-root' basis. This is a local fix which I
may look at some day soon.

To fix this for "Show pending operations", it could be made to work for
multiple resources (if it doesn't do this already), or perhaps to move
up to the workspace level (as an action in the view itself).
I don't know how difficult it would be to implement, but I guess it's
worth trying.

Does anyone have any good ideas for this?
