Hello Nick,

I have to agree with everyone who says that this is really a problem
*of* the user.

But I also agree that it is a problem *for* the user (if he tends to to
do that).

Have you considered having a script for committing? You can hook that
into the context menu of all folders if you like. You could also move
the Commit entry from TSVN back into the TSVN sub-menu of the folder
context menu, to avoid accidentally using that.

I am not sure this kind of case should be generalized and be tackled by
TSVN itself. Because if you start assuming this kind of incorrect usage,
there is no end to obscuring and bloating the TSVN source code base with
exceptions and handlers for any possible misuse. But philosophically it
is nice to think of a software that tries very hard to make its users
happy of course. :)

With best regards
