Suggestion for "select all" functionality in Commit dialog

I personally like GMail's method of selecting a series of conversations. For
example, at the top of the list of conversations they have this:

*Select: All, None, Read, Unread, Starred, Unstarred**
Right now, there is a single checkbox at the bottom of the Commit dialog in
TortoiseSVN that is toggled on/off to select or deselect all files. I would
like to propose a new feature that uses the GMail way of selecting files.
Not only is this slightly more convenient, but it's more readable and allows
for more intuitive selection patterns. For example:
*Select: All, None, Unversioned, Versioned, Added, Deleted, Modified, Files,
Of course, you might not have *so many*, but I'm listing so many to show the
various different "select all" filters you can use by using simple link
controls (These would not be buttons). I'm thinking this is a relatively
easy feature to implement, at least for the "All" and "None" filters, since
the logic that implements these is already there.

Note, however, that the placement of the above "select all" filters should
be directly above the list view that contains the list of files to commit,
but below the edit box for log messages.
