[TSVN] Shelving

Hi all,

Further to the chat in the main SVN list about 'shelving', would it be a good
menu option to add to TSVN?

Shelving your WC would do the following:

Create a new branch with specified name
Switch to it
Commit any WC changes to the branch
If 'revert' tick box was selected, switch you back to original url and revert.

This is useful in two ways. Firstly it allows quick feature-branching (good for
savepoints). Secondly, when you to stop work on one taks, fix that massive bug
in trunk, then get back to your original work.

Ben's just about convinced me these should go in the main repos, and not in a
seperate patch-storage system! Visual Studio Team Sys seems to keep 'shelvesets'
outside it's versioned file system.

John
