Sort of unrelated, but I too dislike the way clicking update pulls down
everything without prompting you or anything. In fact it would be nice
if you got a dialogue listing the files and folders, in the directory
where you clicked update, with checkboxes, so you could choose which
parts of your wc you wanted to update. Similar to the commit dialogue.
As is, you have to go to check for modifications, then click check
repository to see what updates are about to be applied to your wc.
