suggestion for tortoise

Hello Tortoise guys&girls

First let me say that I think Tortoise subversion is a great product, that we are happy users of. THANKS!

Often we have several related sub projects in a larger project as
  Mainproject\PartA
  Mainproject\PartB
  Mainproject\PartC
  Mainproject\PartD
  Mainproject\PartE
et cetera
This can be many Parts, and some of them 100% out of my scope.

Assume then that at first I think I shall never work with anything but PartA
And thus check out PartA only in a locale MainProj\PartA folder
Maybe later I find out that I should do something on say PartD (but still not the rest) so I also check out PartD in a locale parallel folder.

The suggestion is then to allow commit et cetera on the local MainProj folder also, even though it hasnt got a .svn folder!
This should be allowed IF (and only if) ALL sub folders that have a .svn points to paralells in the same tree.

This COULD be made even more elegant by scanning the whole subtree (not only level 1) until folders with .svn is found. If ALL .svn subfolder-positions match the same positions in a subversion-tree the function should be able to handle it as a whole!

In the above example assume we also have
  Mainproject\PartF\SubpartA
  Mainproject\PartF\SubpartB
in subversion

and maybe I have only
  C:\MainProj\PartA
  C:\MainProj\PartD
  C:\MainProj\PartF\SubPartB
checked out from subversion to my local disk.

Then handling MainProj as a whole would still be very well-defined, intuitive and useful in daily work.

I could then handle all that is relevant to me in a project as a whole, without filling my disk with a lot of stuff, that is none of my business anyway.

Best Regards
