Yeah, I'm just so spoiled by the recursive abilities of the commit / add
dialogs that I want them expanded. My specific use case is that we're adding
our compiler tool-chain to our repository. We have executables in our ignore
lists, since we don't usually need to add them. I failed to notice that I
added the whole tool-chain tree without the executables I needed, and
they're sprinkled all over. It would've been a royal pain to do it w/ tsvn,
but wasn't too hard to figure out the command line version. I'm really just
asking for functionality equivalent to "svn status --no-ignore" in your
dialogs. I note that you do support the equivalent of "svn status
--ignore-externals."
