He is referring to VSTS (Microsoft Visual Studio Team System 2005) which
contains all sorts of management and source control goodies. They've done
some big revamps to the way they consider source control, and how it is
involved in the IDE.

If the Subversion team accepts such a patch or implements it by themself,
TSVN
will provide a GUI option for this API - I'm sure.

BTW I could not find any mail with "shelving" in the subject neither in
@user
nor in @dev. So please give us a URL or Message-ID if you are referring to
discussions on other mailing lists.

You would have to specify a location for the branch, too.

And what is the benefit over "Create branch from WC"?

You could just merge the revisions which include the bugfix to trunk.

I don't understand the point of this paragraph... What has Visual Studio to
do
with Subversion or TortoiseSVN?

Please explain more what you mean and what you refer to,
Thanks Rainer
