I know that. But that's exactly what got people mad. For example, the
'properties' entry is usually the last in the context menu. If people
are used to activate that entry with a hotkey, and TSVN uses the same
hotkey, they suddenly have to press it twice. Remember: there are many
language OS versions out there, so we can't just 'use a hotkey which
isn't used by the OS'.
