FWIW, TortoiseSVN modeled their merge wizard after what we did. And
we in turn picked up some of the things we liked in their
interpretation and put them back into ours. Where our merge client
goes beyond TortoiseSVN is assisting you in the post-merge process.

The CollabNet client will not be posted to the Subclipse site. Links
and information will be posted. The CollabNet merge client is EPL

I do not think our change will really help your scenario that much.
You'd have to make the dialog show all unversioned items, and then
selectively remove the items you do not want.

A workflow you might want to look into is to work from the Synchronize
view. Especially if you use the feature to group changes into change
sets this makes it real easy to only see the files you care about in
the dialog.
