Hello,

it is really nice that Windows 2000 is still supported, but I don't
see, why you would have to unconditionally break existing
functionality on one system, to get it work on another one?

In particular I'm refering to the last paragraph of the context menu
section (just above the next heading) at
http://tortoisesvn.net/docs/nightly/TortoiseSVN_en/tsvn-dug.html#tsvn-dug-general-menu

If it really is, that Windows 2000, Windows XP and Windows Vista use
incompatible methods to supply the context menu item, why don't you
ask the Operating System for its version and decide on the procedure
accordingly?

I have both TortoiseSVN AND TortoiseCVS installed on my maschine, and
in contrast to TortoiseSVN I get icons for TortoiseCVS. IDK if
TortoiseCVS shows icons on Windows Vista, but not always is breaking a
working function just to support some new system the best way. If you
have Backwards compatibility it should be as good as possible, not
just "we had no fancy in maintaining this feature".

Regards,
BenBE.
