Re: 1.6.0 commit dialog

I read http://blogs.msdn.com/oldnewthing/archive/2008/05/08/8467905.aspx
(before I made my post). Still the logic behind it escapes me. I
question the conventional wisdom. Why limit the number of ways of
doing the same thing? Especially when you obviously have people that
have become used to using your program in a certain way. You give
your users greater freedom in the way they do their work and let them
use the program in a way that is most efficient for them. Isn't that
a good thing?

Oh, and sorry about the "brain-dead" comment. Thank you for making
TortoiseSVN. It makes my job so much easier.
