The synchronize view really depends on being able to do the repository
operations outside of the tool. I'm not sure how the CVS plugin guys
pulled it off but I get the feeling that they duplicated some of CVS's
code in Eclipse.

With the JavaHL code, it should be possible to replicate a lot of the
SVN operations locally. But I guess that's daydreaming because it would
be too much effort.

OTOH, I guess that a lot more people would like the synchronize
functionality which Eclipse offers in other tools (Turtoise, Netbeans,
IDEA), so maybe it would be worthwhile to bother the SVN developers to
offer more support (like a status command which returns all the
necessary information which you need to implement a proper sync view).

Can someone ask the SVN guys what they think about this?
