[TSVN] Re: failure notice

First, thank you for a great product. This email is meant only as a
constructive criticism, not to start a flame war.

I just started using TurtoiseSVN, and getting started took a very long
time because of ssh2 key generation and management. Even though Putty
has both utilities, finding out that i need them, generating key,
finding pagent, and configuring TSVN to use its internal plink tunnel
took considerable time.

I think it would greatly aid newbies to have puttygen.exe and
pageant.exe added to the distribution, and have a checkbox option to
use "internal" TortoisePlink instead of specifying it manually. Also, just
having TortoisePlink without extra utilities defeats the purpose of
providing it.

On a side note, in large repositories "check for modifications" dialog
takes forever, without any ways of canceling the operation. Does the
svn api provide for async cancellation? Please add a "cancel" button.

Once again, thank you for a great project!
