Changelist group checking/unchecking

From: Alexander Klenin <klenin_at_gmail.com>

In a recent nightly, I tested new context menu items relating to changelists.
In general, they work quite well, I especially like the new "Move to
changelist" item ;-)

I have following further questions/suggestions:

1) I thing the names "Check Group" and "Uncheck Group" are slightly
confusing, as changelists are not referred to as "groups" anywhere
else in the interface. The fact that this therm is used in the source
does not help user much ;-)
I suggest "Select/deselect changelist items", also without
capitalizing every word.

2) Is there any reason why check/uncheck is performed by double-click,
not single-click?

3) How about adding "Select only this changelist" item, which would
check all items current changelist and uncheck everything else?
This would directly correspond to "svn ci --changelist" of the command
line client.

4) Perhaps add a "Dismantle(?) changelist" to remove all files from
it. It is, of course, possible to select and remove all files from the
changelist, but I am afraid it may me non-obvious to some users. Or
may be not -- not sure here.

5) "Keep changelist" checkbox name is slightly confusing when more
then one changelist is committed. Perhaps replace it with "Keep
changelists" in that case?
