the following seems to be the list of column mappings:
Company -- SVN Status
Description -- SVN Revision
File Version -- SVN URL
Product Name -- SVN short URL
Product Version -- SVN mime-type
Keywords -- SVN Local lock owner
I really fail to see how this would be useful to a user,
nor why these particular associations have been chosen.
What is the purpose of this feature?
I don't think that the SVN columns should necessarily disappear
for non-version controlled folders,
because it would be useful to see the revision, for example,
of a working copy folder within an 'ordinary' folder.
