Re: Window titles

Would it be possible to maybe change all the dialogs to "<Action> - <Working
Copy or url> - TortoiseSVN"? This seems to make the most sense to me as
first i'd want to know looking at my task bar which TSVN action it was, and
then on what directory or url it was working on, and the last bit for the
icon viewing challenged? I guess I missed the discussion on this prior to
1.3.0, but I do have to agree that having the redundant TortoiseSVN at the
front right next to an icon that tells me the same in less space is
annoying. Wish I had seen this the first time around and could of given my
support for not changing it.
