I don't think Alex is saying you have to use a commercial plug in, just
pointing out how SmartSVN's GUI shows it. SmartSVN is not a plug in either,
its an SVN client.

If we could just switch to Git we wouldn't have any of these stupid

Again, problems that don't happen in Git because of the fundamental ways in
which in handles merging and revisions.

Yes, I'm trying to push the conversation in the direction of switching the

dark ages of SCM and into the new age.... ;-)
