would like the ability to break multiple locks in the repo browser

Here is a suggestion for an enhancement of the Repository Browser break
locks feature.

When I use the repository browser I can only break one lock at a time.
I would prefer it if I could highlight multiple items (including folders)
and recursively break all of the locks in one go.
Since the delete action already lets you select multiple items and
recursively delete them,
I believe the break locks action should follow the same pattern.

If you are worried about breaking too many in one go, then how about a
filter to select only locks from one individual?

In order to support recursive lock breaking, you also need the ability to
tell which folders contain locks.
Currently, folders don't indicate whether they contain any locks inside
and I have to open each one to find out whether there are any.

How about displaying list of userID's that have locks in a given folder.
Alternatively, just indicating (with an asterisk or something) that locks
are in the folder
would already be a big help.


Currently, I'm using TortoiseSVN 1.2.6, Build 4786 - 32 Bit
