Re: Serious usability problem that causes lost data: moving subdirectories

What about a function like this:

color getfoldercolor (folder a) {
  folder parent=a+'\..';
  path remotepatha=GetRemotePath(a);
  path remotepathparent=GetRemotePath(parent);
  if (IsParentPath(remotepathparent,remotepatha)) return warning;
  else return AllOK;
}

GetRemotePath() must already exist, because TortoiseSVN can show that
information. IsParentPath() is simple to implement in a few lines.
