And that is good, since there are probably a lot more users using the
svn:, http: or https: protocol than there are users using the file:
protocol. And only the file: protocol needs the Open Folder dialog.

And that is a good think IMHO. You can still switch to another
repository from that dialog as well, even those accessed via file:.

Maybe, but I think it is better to first decide on the protocol you
want to use, and then activate the '...' button as soon as a
reasonable default can be guessed (which is how it works at the moment
