Feature request for handling externals in repro browser

i really like the new TortoiseSVN version showing the externals within the repro browser. I think with some small extension the usability of that feature could be further increased.
1. Delete of externals directory
I used accidently the delete command on an external directory within the repro browser and was surprised that the target directory and not the external link was deleted.
I think at least a warning dialog should be shown. Instead of a warning dialog, a selection dialog to decide whether to delete the link or target directory would further increase the usability.
2. Move/Copy of externals directory
For moving externals directories it would be also nice to have the choice to either move/copy the directory or the external link.
3. Context menu of externals directory
Within the context menu of an externals directory it would be nice to have an option to turn the externals reference into a directory copy. So that the repro browse would first remove the related externals property entry and afterwards copy the old externals target to the current directory.
4. Creating externals links/references
The creation of externals links/references could be improved by providing an additional entry, e.g. "Copy to (external link) ...", within the context menu of directory. Additionally, a special key combination for directory drag & drop would be nice.
So that are just a bunch of ideas for improving the repro browser. Keep up the great work.
