Excellent. I've started using meld thanks to it getting mentioned here,
and I noticed the svn tree stuff was quite swish. It should probably get
a more prominent namecheck on the pidgin-monotone page.

As to monotone, I'm so pleased with the flexibility of branch handling
that I'm shifting our all our source from svn to it at work.
