What are you talking about? TortoiseCVS doesn't have a treeview in the
commit dialog at all! At least not in the version I'm using.
All that dialog does "more" than TSVN is to put all files with the same
status (modified, added, removed, ...) into its own subwindow. And to
tell you: I don't like that at all.

That was requested once before. But I couldn't and can't see what that
would be good for. And people requesting this couldn't explain it to me
why they really want this. Why do you need "old" commit log messages? If
you commit something, then it's everytime a _new_ commit which will
create a new revision, so it would be so _not_ good to have the same log
message there. In CVS, things are a little different: each file has it's
own "revision", and you can commit one big change in several commits -
it doesn't make a difference. But in Subversion, it would! So by addind
that "feature", we just would encourage users to use bad (old) log messages.

Because the code of TCVS and TSVN is _completely_ different. There's no
way of sharing code. The only thing we can do is share ideas. But only
those which are good for both projects. And most of them are not, as CVS
and Subversion are completely different approaches to the same problem.
