[TSVN] TortoiseMerge & Patches & Paths

Hi Folks,

One thing I'm missing in TortoiseMerge is the ability to change the working
location when trying to apply a patch. I know that I can always look in the
patchfile first, before applying the patch to find out from where to start,
but I'm also a lazy person.

In the 'file patches' list, a file that cannot be patched is already shown
in red, but it doesn't tell me where the correct location is. I'm sure that
most of the work is already done behind the scenes, but the results are well
hidden :-)
Feature requests:
- It would be nice if the file patches box would display the working
directory in its caption. Maybe truncated in a way that a long path would
look like "C:\Source\ ... \subversion\po\" (start and end always visible)
- Add a little toolbar to the file patches box (or use the existing toolbar)
with the following buttons:
  * A "show full path" toggle that would make the 'file patches'
    either display "de.po" or "subversion/po/de.po", so I can
    immediately see that I'm in the wrong place.
    Remember the setting of the "full path" toggle in the registry
  * A "up one dir" button that would move the working base up one dir.
    I think that would already solve most problems.
  * (max comfort) A "browse for folder" button that allows me to change
    the working base for the patch without having to reload everything

- I'd love to be able to right-click onto a .patch or .diff file and select
"apply-patch here" from the TSVN context menu.

That's all, thanks for listening :-)

- Lübbe
