It certainly seems a reasonable request since this is a nice naming conversion.
Perhaps you can suggest a naming convention for source control plug ins so people...
1. Know it is a source control plug in
2. know is it a plug in for tortoise.

Do all the tortoise clients share a common code base wrt dealing with the shell, etc?
