There are also some serious problems with that approach. In a treeview,
the folders must be always shown. And for the commit dialog, that would
mean that a folder is shown but (depending on if it really changed)
doesn't need committing.
Another thing: in a tree control, there's no way of checking a folder
for commit. Files can have a checkbox assigned to them, but not folders.
And what should TortoiseSVN do in such a case? Right now, you can
select/deselect a folder for commit - with a tree view control this
wouldn't be possible anymore. Should TSVN simply commit folder changes
always? I don't think that's a good idea!
