RFC: Repository browsing

I notice that, when I do an SVN checkout or import a project, the Repository Browser that pops up has two options to select a repository:

1. Type in the full URL
2. Choose one from the drop-down list

I'm curious to know if there is enough demand to post an RFE to add a third method:

3. Browse the file system for a file-based repository.

This came up when I was demoing the features of TSVN to a new hire. I showed how to create a repository (Create repository here) and then wanted to show how to import a project into the newly created repository. Since the Repository Browser only gave options 1 and 2, and the new repository was not (yet) in the drop-down list, I had to go with option 1. Then I had to remember the full path to the newly-created repository. A few embarrassing moments later, I succeeded and we imported the project.

Had there been an option 3 to browse the file system (including network shares, whether mapped to drive letters or not), I could have avoided those few moments of embarrassment.
