   That is what I was talking about. #2 Select those files and add to
commit set. #4 Edit comment on commit set node. All that time you can
still open comparison editors. Once done just commit the commit set
node. That simple. IMHO much more organized then overloaded popup dialog
with whole bunch of duplicated functionality.

   If you are so up to dialogs, why not use TortoiseSVN? It will give
all the deilaogs you want.

   Anyways, it seem you have quite a lot of time in your hands, so I
can't compete here... and also too lazy to read it all. :-P
