[Suggestion] Vertically Align From/To URLs in Relocate Warning Dialog

From: Nathan Kidd <nathan-svn_at_spicycrypto.ca>

When you Relocate your WC you get a scary warning dialog telling you
that you may kill something if you use the wrong URL. The From: and To:
URLs are shown, but they're not vertically aligned, so it's more
difficult to compare. It would be useful if they were vertically aligned.

E.g. change

> From: svn://example.com/yeoldrepo/trunk/project/data
> To: svn://example.com/newrepo/trunk/project/data


> From: svn://example.com/yeoldrepo/trunk/project/data
> To: svn://example.com/newrepo/trunk/project/data

In our environment, and I suppose in most people's, the most common
Relocate operation is to change the repo name or a short base path, but
you *must* accurately preserve any deeper paths in the URL.

Thanks for TSVN,


P.S. On a separate,
train-of-thought (I should get an award for that), the whole relocate
process could be made nearly fool-proof and a lot less scary for users
by moving some of the checks the relocate (presumably) does to the
dialog itself, and if everything checks out, say so and be less scary.
E.g. Does To: URL exist? Is UUID same? Do same files/dirs exist in new
URL? (More complex, needing to check new repo@ WC BASE )
