Changelists testing

I understand that new 'changelist' feature is not ready yet, but I am
so excited about it I could not wait ;-) So I downloaded an tested
last nightly, and below are issues I noticed.
You probably know some or even all of them, but still perhaps this
list will be useful to you:

1) Changelist captions have a context menu with a single item, which
does nothing.

2) After using 'Create and add to changelist' on a file, all other
files disappear from commit dialog list. After pressing F5 everything
restores files appear again.
BTW, the item caption seems awkward to me, I can not think of a better
one, but see below.

3) 'Add to changelist %s' context menu does not do anything, because
it is shown only for files which are already in the mentioned
changelist. I think this item should actually be submenu 'Add to
changelist...' with each existing changelist as a separate submenu
Plus, possibly, an item for <new changelist> -- in that case, the
'Create and add to changelist' item could be eliminated.

4) I am sure you already thought of it, but still -- the most
important thing about changelists is ability to quickly
select/unselect all its files as a group. The ideal implementation
would be a checkbox to the left of changelist name. However, it seems
to me that it will not be easy to implement with the technique you
used to display changelist captions. Or am I mistaken?

5) Whether or not the checkbox will not be implemented, a context menu
for changelists should IMHO contain, besides obvious 'Select /
unselect all files in changelist' also 'Select only this changelist'
item. It will make easy to commit changes form one changelist only --
I think it will be the most often used method, so much so that perhaps
it deserves 'default' slot.
