I think you are overstating this a bit. I have used several different SCM
providers in Eclipse and they all have their own ways of doing things. I
would agree that at some level the Eclipse developers are trying to create
something generic that others can reuse, but let's face it, they are still
doing what serves their own needs first.

I am sorry that you view our UI as unfortunate, but I think it is a big
improvement over the CVS UI in most places and entirely appropriate as the
UI for a Subversion SCM provider.
