I think it would be handy to have the option (under settings and/or at the bottom of the repo-browser dialog) to have the browser always open at the repository root.

Why would you want to do that? Going to the root is a single mouse
click. Trying to get back from the root to the WC root is multiple
mouse clicks. And more importantly you may not even have access rights
to the repo root.

Again, why? That would hammer the repository server and slow down your browsing.

Lots of options, little gain. But have a look at the 2-pane repo
browser in 1.5.0-RC2
