workaround for synchronize after checkout

  I've put together some prototype for the approach we have discussed
for AbstractJhlClientAdapter. Basically it is what user would do
manually. See patch attached.

  Current limitations are all your edge cases, some logging in DirUtils
and progress indication for DirUtils functions.
  Present code also always using copy + delete in place of rename().

  If you ok with doing something like this I can pull up methods to
handle temp location to common adapter class (to make it work for
cmdAdapter) and check what should be done in the UI.
