>> Is there a way to change the names
There isn't a way that I know of to rename any of the labels on the
plugin without recompiling the plugin, or submitting a patch to support
this kind of a feature.

>> exclude the ambiguous menu items
I know there's a bit of a learning curve to use any new software,
because some terms are similar, or map to different functions. However,
none of the menu items are actually non-functional "template" icons -
they all do distinct actions. If you have used CVS in the past, you
might find this useful:

Subversion for CVS Users

So maybe I can help you understand the terminology:

>> 1) "get latest" = get read-only copies from repo;
That is an SVN Export, rather than an SVN Checkout.

>> 2) "check-out" = lock so others can't check-out ???
Are you _really_ sure you want to lock files so others can't check in?
Eclipse/SVN has very good merging tools and allows for atomic check-ins
(again the manual for more information about this, if you are
interested). That is probably one of the biggest features of SVN.

I know I'm a bit of an evangelist - just trying to help if I can.
