Comments on merge wizard

From: Alexander Klenin <klenin_at_gmail.com>

I just tested a new merge wizard.
Overall, it should indeed simplify merge process for the new users
(hard to judge since I have no such users to test on).
Leaving a question of wizard vs tabs aside for the moment, below are
few observations:

1) IMHO we should either exclusively use Windows default buttons on
the bottom pane, or not use them at all.
Right now they are displayed inconsistently in mixed-locale environments
(for example, English Tortoise on Russian Windows or vice-versa).

2) In the top right corner, I see Tortoise's butt ;-) Is it intended?

3) Am I connect in assumption that "To merge all revisions, leave the
box empty."
comment means that a separate "Merge all" command is no longer needed?
This would be good thing.

4) While testing merge, command still says 'Dry Run' --
I think this should be replaced by 'test only'.

5) Why "Record merge" is a checkbox and not a button?
Does it make sense in combination with any other button, like "Test merge"
or (not-added-yet) "Diff"?

6) I am not sure yet, but it seems that use case descriptions on the first page
might be confusing to users with different workflows.
For example, both descriptions do not reflect the typical usage in our company.
However, at the moment I have no better idea.
