[TSVN] Top level menus, Log message dialog

Hello! A few minor suggestions, some things taken from TortoiseCVS.

- If I have shortcut to a folder, and right click on it, I don't get the
TortoiseSVN options. For example, I have a shortcut to my project
directory on the quicklaunch bar. I'd like to be able to right click on
it and do SVN Update or SVN Commit.

- The context menu when right clicking on a file which could be added to
subversion, could contain the Add option on the top level menu (where
update and commit go), rather than the TortoiseSVN submenu.

- Similarly, when right clicking on a changed file, the Diff option
would be better on the top level menu.

- When I click "Get All" in the log messages dialog, I find the dialog
"Shall the log stop on a copy" very confusing, and an unnecessary
interupting modal dialog. It would be better to either 1) Always get
everything, but mark with a line in the dialog where the first copy was,
so people can see where a branch started. 2) Have two buttons on the
log messages dialog "Get to Branch Start", "Get All History", which
appropriately ghost themselves out.

- I expect the message log to have everything in straight away, and find
it confusing that it doesn't. Possible solutions: 1. Couldn't you run a
"Get All" in a background thread automatically? 2. Could make it
clearer at the top of the dialog that the log is incomplete, perhaps by
putting the Get All button inside the top list box (appearing at the
end, and saying something like "Get more..."), or if it is hard to make
the buttons just add a row saying "To get the rest of the history click
Get All".
