Feature Request: better import and copy

Following up my previous post about improved file rename support to make
tree imports easier, how to you all feel about the concept of allowing
tortoise to import
a directory tree over the top of an existing working copy?

I,e, deleting any files that are not in the imported tree, adding any new
files, and
allowing some sort of options to deal with renamed files.

As I mentioned in my previous post, I realise this is what svn_load_dirs.pl
is for, but
it just seems wrong to need an external perl script when for all other
tasks tortoise is by
far the best svn interface available.

This has previously been requested on the svn mailing list, but was largely
(The suggestion was to add purge and overwrite options to the import

If others feel this idea has merit, I would be willing to have a go at
implementing it. (I
have VS2005 and don't mind getting my hands dirty, but have never looked
at the tortoise source before so your (or my) mileage may vary.)

1. Obviously I haven't worked out all the details, I'm mainly trolling for
a ideas.
2, Even without gui changes a tortoiseproc option to do what I'm suggesting
would be
better than the batch files I use atm.
3. For bonus points I would also like to see the equivalent functionality
for the svn
copies. I maintain a C++ library where the headers used to compile the libs
need to
be commited as part of the distribution. The distribution directory is then
svn copied
into projects that use the library. How do other users handle this?


P.S. I can't remember who made the comment about Leica in reply to a
previous post
but no I'm not based in Herrbrugg. Leica have a few international R&D
offices these
days, if you're ever in Brisbane let me know.
