It is certainly something we have considered, but any performance
benefit would seem to be marginal at best and the tradeoff is code

The Change Set stuff is not public API and apparently Eclipse does not
plan to ever change this. There are open issues in Eclipse bugzilla.

They pre-date the feature. We have not updated Subclipse to co-exist
with those new API's yet:


There are some differences. For example, SVN does not allow folders
to belong to a changelist and Eclipse does. Also, SVN does not allow
you to set a comment on a Changelist. So we could not rely on SVN
exclusively to store the changelist information. Of course you also
cannot have unversioned items in an SVN changelist.
