You say it: GUI tools. SVN is not GUI.

It's hard enough to have to minimize or close all apps to get to the
desktop for the bin. In the filemanager it's pretty useless with
names like [X-123-DSA-etc...] (W2K SP2). One has to guess and
review everything in a file viewer to find the right stuff.

?? You're joking, aren't you? Haven't seen much of automatically,
at least not when it was introduced in W95 - Can't delete 'cause
the bin is full or so ...

This deletes *anything* in the bin, doesn't it? Can't see anything
sensible in this. IMHO sensible is that stuff is selected. The either
all or nothing approach is just like keep all or delete right away
from the start.

It's an extension using SVN under the hood as far as I know and
understand. So it cannot do what SVN not provides for.

Don't think this is on topic anymore though, so from my side it's
the last posting on this.

Have a fine Whitsun weekend!
