Okay, I think just a couple of (minor) improvements are required to this
"Choose items ..." screen:
a) There's no easy way to deselect everything. If I only wanted to checkout
one sub-folder (out of 10), I have to manually de-select all the other nine.
I would expect to be able to de-select the root, and select the folder I
need. (This seems to work on every folder *other* than the root).
b) When the directories are collapsed, it's not clear (when a folder is
checked), whether I will get all the entries within that folder, or only a
portion of the folder. Could a tri-state checkbox be used for this? (Checked
= everything, Grey = part, Unchecked = Nothing)?
