RE: Feature request: tree view

It might have an appearance similar to the one-pane tree view from TSVN
1.4, except you would only see the subset of files that the dialog box
would ordinarily display.

For most commits I do, this wouldn't be very helpful, but on occasion, I
think it might be nice to have this facility as something you could
toggle on/off--maybe a checkbox within the dialog itself, or a context
menu toggle within the file listing or in its header. Some users might
be clued in more obviously to the structure of their changes if they had
such a display.

A case that comes to mind recently was where one user inadvertently
committed changes to both the trunk and a branch in one commit, when she
only meant to commit the branch (she didn't know she had trunk files to
commit at all). People often ignore long paths presented in textual
form. Had the user seen things broken out graphically as separate
trees, maybe she would have aborted the operation.
