[TSVN] Commit/Checkout Icons

Hi,

ok, this is awful nitpicking, since I haven't even installed Tortoise,
yet. But I will. Soon. Since WinCVS _really_ sucks.

But nevertheless: Wouldn't it make sense to have different colors for the
commit and checkout icons? I mean the direction of the arrow already makes
them different though there's no (intuitive) logics behind that. Ok, one
can say: my file is usually to the left, so an arrow right-to-left means
"update". That's ok. But also differing colors makes them easier to find,
since you just head for the green icon without any thinking (or other kind
of concentration for eg. reading).

So I suggest let "update" stay green and make "commit" have a red icon
(since it's potentially dangerous--I mean `update' can break thinks, too,
but just for you and noone else.)

But that's just my 2 Cents (and admittedly just a quick idea).

Keep hacking, nice work

regards
