Mark, please don't take this personal. It is definetely just my own
experience being the nearly the only person (out of other 70 developers on
the same project) who is actively using Sync view features in Eclipse and
the only person who can observe in real time what is going on around and
only person whi see amount of duplicated code and other nonsenses committed
each day. I gues it give me sort of excuse to beg for similar functionality
in Subclipse. :-)

Righ, each VCS tool has its own things. Honestly I hadrly see that Subclipse
is much special about branching as you put it, and you and me perhaps on
opposite sides of the fence. Anyway, that would be way less important
comparing to the Sync view features... :-)
