Yes, it would be that complex. Because right now we use a library to get
the dialog resizable, and that library doesn't like it if you "manually"
move the controls around. Because it doesn't know about that moving
around and then things get screwed up.

We've talked about this before. Sure it would be great if Subversion
would do that, but it doesn't. And it would be even better if Subversion
would provide server side config files, and not only for the Subversions
own config options but customizable. But Subversion doesn't do that and
probably never will. Every time I brought something like this up the
idea was rejected right away (or at least four or five mails later if
not immediately).
So we had to implement this without the "missing" Subversion features
using only what's available _now_. It isn't perfect because of that, but
that's the best we could do...

Give me some time for that...
